A Year of Stories/Week 34

Parenthood is preparing for 18 years to get to this day. College drop off day. 
The oldest babe. The first to leave us. 
Trusting her with our values.
Spending the last couple days with her knowing it was all about to change. 
Our family of 5 will now function as 4. 
Tears of pride and sadness blended together.

A Year of Stories is a collaborative group of storytelling photographers sharing our images and prose with each other and you. 
Up next in our blog circle is a story with an urban vibe from the super talented, Sonja Stich!


  1. And I thought a pre-k hallway was torture. I can't even imagine the momma emotions you are going through - pride, loneliness, nostalgia...

    She will be so happy you documented this moment. I wish I had images of this event in my life.

  2. I love that you documented this moment for both of you. She has a great photo display, too! Wishes for getting through these first few weeks! I'm sure she's missing you, too, though.
