She's Not Going Nowhere

That's what Kidlet texted me ..."well I'm not going nowhere".

She got her first university acceptance letter and it seemed to come as a huge relief. She has been harbouring a fear of being the only one in her class not to get accepted anywhere ... although there really is no chance of that. Kidlet has been deeply involved in her high school and community and in spite of being on the ice with her hockey 4-5 nights a week/8 months a year - for the past 10 years, she has managed an A average.

This is a nerve wracking time for the high school college hopefuls. They are perched precariously on the cusp of dreams facing infinite possibility. As parents, we have reserved front row seats from which to watch them take flight.

So these are exciting times around our house. Kidlet and I have lots to look forward to in the next six months... graduation, Kenya, university. And over in the corner there stands the double edged sword - holding close and letting soar. God I am going to miss her. But I know I will enjoy the technicolour show that is Kidlet - unplugged and unleashed.
