Today we dropped our daughter off at the airport. In a matter of hours she will be en route to Florence Italy where she will study abroad over the next 112 days. But, who is counting. We are so excited for her adventure. We supported her goal to study abroad, because it was a decision that we, her parents, wish we had done in college. At the same time, it is incredibly difficult to know that she is a continent away. We will keep busy with DIY projects and work!
Florence, Italy has been trending for several years as Amanda Knox’s umpteenth trial is currently taking place in Florence. Should I worry that she doesn’t know her 5 roommates? They will be joining her from across the United States. Six girls, strangers today.. sharing a small 3 room apartment. I wonder what their parents are thinking today? It is not lost on me that she is leaving to study abroad; not to fight for our freedom as Americans. Still, it rattles me. Will I sleep?
P.S. Thanks to my endless projects to occupy me, this didn’t get published. She is on week #3 and doing great!!!!!! laura
