we took aubrey down to college a week ago.
seeing aubrey say goodbye with her brothers and sister was hard and very touching.
it was nice to see the love that they have for each other,
sometimes i wonder if they even like each other what with all the fighting that goes on between them sometimes.
after the goodbyes were said regan, aubrey and i got in the car and started the drive.
none of us said very much for awhile....i think we were all processing what was REALLY going on.
we were all pretty nervous
once we got to the school the unpacking began and let me tell you aubrey brought WAY too much..tee hee.
aubrey has an enormous amount of clothes and it wasn't going to all fit in the closet.
gotta love girls and clothes.
we ended up bringing a good portion of it back with us.
after we got her settled
got her room decorated
it was time to say our good byes.
to my surprise it wasn't as hard as i had imagined.
i was happy for her
i was excited for her to have this really neat experience
i was really proud and happy
i didn't cry at all
this is a rare thing for me
i am a real cry-er
aubrey is a cry-er too
(she got this from me....poor kid)
but she didn't cry either
we both must be growing up
life around here will be different without aubrey
thank goodness for
the silly siblings
as we were gettin in our car to leave
aubrey got in a truck with 2 guys
and took off
