Dee’s New Home
My girl has made her final decision on college. Swarthmore College will be her new home for the next four years. The campus is absolutely stunning and the school is just so amazing. I’m so extremely proud of all of Dee’s achievements to be able to get into such a prestigious school, especially this year. She has worked so very hard and has overcome so much especially after losing her best friend Alexa right before entering high school.
And while there were more affordable schools to choose from, the moment Dee stepped onto the campus at Swarthmore it just felt right.
The thought that my oldest girl will be leaving home and living somewhere far away without me near fills me with such bittersweet emotions. I am so excited for her but so sad for myself.
I just can’t believe this time has already come… I’ve thought about it since she was young and it always felt so distant and far away. And now here we are…
We both made it. Together.
