First Day of College

My first born went away to college today.  Something we've planned for since he was in kindergarten.  He's studied hard and got fantastic grades; passed his SAT's with way above marks, just so he could join the ranks of incoming freshman this year.  I'm so proud of all he's accomplished and I so look forward to all he'll achieve.  We packed him up early, got to college earlier than his check-in time and had him moved into his room, helped him unpack a couple of items (he didn't want it all unpacked just yet), had lunch with him and said our goodbyes, in no time at all.  That's what it felt like today.  No time at all.  Where did the time go.  Just yesterday, ok, maybe the day before yesterday, I held this newborn in my arms, who became my whole world.  And now, he's gone.  I know he'll be back on some weekends, and holidays and summers, at least my head knows it all.  My heart doesn't seem to understand and my eyes seem to have sprung a leak.   How long before my eyes dry up, I wonder.  In the meantime,  I miss my boy.  I just simply miss my boy.
