tomorrow afternoon we will head to denver for the long weekend. my niece destiny is graduating from high school on saturday, and we are so excited for her. she's such a sweet girl. a girl who grew up way to fast.
on sunday my daughter will be celebrating her 14TH BIRTHDAY! so we are getting a hotel to have a little POOL TIME FUN, SHOPPING, AND RELAXATION TIME. my mom will be here and is flying the skies as i type. it is good timing for my mom to be with us, since monday will be a year since my dad passed away.(a year. can't believe it.) i missed my daughter's13 birthday last year as i was in maine at the time so this year we'll make it extra special for her.
tuesday before we head home i will be dropping brooke off at the airport in denver. she is heading out to DC with her classmates for the rest of the week, to get educated. (i'm a nervous wreck about sending her too) my husband says i need to let them (our kids) go at some point to explore the world, but i'd like to tell him-UH, NO. NO I DON'T. even though i know he's right. i can't protect them from EVERYTHING! (some of my anxiety about how i deal with my kids when they are gone away like this, probably was caused from my last post) or maybe it's because i'm a mom and that's what moms do. worry about their kids. whatever the reason, i will say i am excited for her to have this experience and chance to go. i hope she has a blast!
can't wait to start into this long weekend of fun with family. hope your weekend is the same.
