The Big Week for My Little Girl


It’s been a big week for my oldest.

On Tuesday, she took her driver's license test (and passed).


On Thursday night, we stayed up till 1 AM as she applied to seven different colleges.

On Friday night, she went out to a group dinner to celebrate her friend’s 18th birthday.

On Saturday morning, she competed in the local community 5K, while I stood on the sidelines and cheered.

Our relationship is changing. I’m beginning to realize that I’m now a father of a young adult who is going to continue to grow ever more independent. I’m not sure how I feel about this.

She will always be my little girl but, it's incredible to see the woman she is becoming.
