Bye Bye Duckie

Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I are on the long drive back home. We left early this morning with our SUV packed with all of our younger daughter's precious belongings. We arrived at her college around noon and promptly began unloading all the boxes. We managed to fit all her stuff into her very small dorm room. We utilized every nook and cranny. Socks all neatly tucked away. Books. Sweaters. Shoes. Purses. Computer all hooked up and ready to go. We made her bed and made sure she could get up to the top bunk. All her sheets are tucked in and her brightly colored comforter and pillows brightened up the plain room. We filled her desk with her paper clips and pens and pencils. We stayed as long as we could making sure everything was all set. Last thing to come out of the box was her sweet lovable duckie. I placed duckie onto her pillow and the room was complete. Nothing left for Mommy and Daddy to do. Nothing left except to say goodbye. As the tears began to flow - we gave her one last big hug goodbye. Goodbye sweet daughter - have fun at college! Your life's adventures are just beginning.
