It seems like yesterday Lauren started kindergarten and tomorrow I'm going to be taking her to the airport so she can fly to Vancouver, British Columbia to start her Freshman year at the University of British Columbia
Where did the time go?
Yep, I'm the dad who is a little sad to see their 18 yr old move across the country to go to college to follow her dreams.
When I was headed off to college I was just heading down the road to Mt. Pleasant to attend Central Michigan and now my oldest daughter is headed to one of the most beautiful cities in the world to live.
And I'm also the guy that vividly recalls the bus picking Lauren up for kindergarten at the top of our driveway on her first day of school. I remember that day like it was yesterday.
So I guess I just need to enjoy the moment.
On Friday Lauren and I did a great hike up to Humpback Rock at Sunrise and it was spectacular....I need to do this more often!
Our loved ones value out time. They value us being present. I know I'm not the best at that but I'm trying.
So Lauren heads off to college today...where did the time go???
