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.
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.
