She's leaving today on an 8-day good will/mission trip to El Salvador.
Yes, the people from church will take good care of her, but my baby is heading to another country and I won't be there with her.
This kid. She's such a pistol. She's always gunning for new experiences; things that will broaden her horizons. When I told her, "Hey, I'll leave Skype on so if you get access to a computer you can ring me up," and she said, "Mom, the whole point of this is to enrich my world with other things, not technology."
Join me in wishing my girl safe travels.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to curl up into a tiny ball for just a little bit and try not to think about the fact that in just a few years, college will be an adventure that likely takes her away for more than just 8 days.
Time is a bullet train.
