Our daughter, not yet 13, is taking her first semi-solo trip. She’ll be traveling with a group from her soccer club to Denver for the national soccer camp.

We are not dealing with a scared, frantic child.

Mom, on the other hand, is a different story.

There’s something unsettling about having a child take one of those big steps.

What if…?

What if…?

The packing is done. We plan on being at the airport at 5:00 AM (at least traffic will be light on the way there, not so much on the way home).

Now, all we have to deal with is reality. Our children are growing up.

  1. I hope she has a great time and is very successful – and that you can cope.

  2. And it always happens way too quickly. Prayers for her safe journey and peace for her parents at home.

  3. Congratulations to your daughter, to YOU, Steve, and to the family! May you and your family continue to be blessed always. (Oh, yeah. May your daughter, score a Gooooaaal or 3!)
