How did we get from this

to this . . .
so quickly?

This morning we sent our first baby off . . . to her "grown-up" world --- in the far-far-away land of Cincinnati, Ohio. We hugged and kissed her good-bye at the Minneapolis airport....then drove off.....and although it felt wrong . . . it also felt right. My tears were a mix --- part sad - but alot happy and proud of our girl. She's a brave, strong & sensible girl (woman) who is very capable and equipped to enter her nursing career doing what she does best --- caring for others with her God-given gifts.
Cara - we love you!

  6. It's hard to see a daughter go off on her own, yet that is what all that bringing up is about. A daughter/granddaughter is someone you hold in your heart forever. You will do great Cara, G-mo
