Getting ready

The Yarn Harlot (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee) has a great post today about letting a child go. My daughter's not going quite so far away as Australia, but tomorrow we take her to college and leave without her. It's all new. I said a little bit about it today over on the Mama, PhD blog at Inside Higher Ed--more later.

Beautiful post-- it made me miss the (not quite New England, but close enough) fall as I knew it for so many years. And remember what it was like to go off to college, with so many possibilities open before me. But I'm not ready yet to speculate upon my own children someday leaving home-- though I can see that one is never truly 100% ready for that!
