My Baby Takes the Next Step






A new life on his own. I am so excited for him! (I say through teary eyes.) I took him to the dorm and helped him arrange it. This is probably the best it will ever look. I guess I was spoiled. I went to a private college and had a huge room that was gorgeous. Cody...doesn't get that...but he is boys so he probably doesn't care.
Notice he does have Wacko, some assorted stuffed animals from girls and the original Barney are there with him to keep him company.


Any Way....I've put him into God's hands and I hope that Cody and Jesus have a good time together in college.

Letting go is tough....I am praying he has a good semester there and that you do too. I know he'll miss you lots, (despite what any teenager might admit) Hang in there.

Yes! Exciting and scary!
We went through that with our daughters.
They have to leave the nest sooner or later!

I remember when my parents left me at my dorm....my dad gave me one of his 'major milestone' speeches... I now appreciate what it must have been like for them...only a few years away from that with my guys! Sounds like he is settling in well though
