It's a bittersweet time here at my house. My 25 year old daughter Elyse and her husband Mike packed up their U-Haul and headed to Delaware. That is so far from Indiana. I've been hijacking her Facebook posts with sad faces for the past 24 hours.
They stayed here with us the last couple nights while they were packing up their apartment. It's such a sad moment for a mom to watch her baby get into her car for a 12 hour drive away from home, or her now former home.
There is a silver lining to my very dark cloud though. The reason they have chosen Delaware to make their new home is because she received a full schoarlship to grad school at the University of Delaware. How can you say no to a full scholarship? She's so smart and beautiful and I will miss her :(
