Saying Goodbye

This morning I took my middle child to the airport to fly to California for a school-sponsored camping trip before he begins his freshman year of college.  Even though we will see him again on Wednesday when we head out to help move him into the dorms, today felt momentous.  

One of our members on MidChix, Mama Holli, who you may know from her fabulous blog, Nobody Puts Mama in the Corner, started a Flock & Forum for Chix with Baby Chicks Flying the Coop.  Whether your chicks are off to college, careers, marriage, war, or even just moving down the street, this is the place where we share our stories, tears, tips, fears, joys and just about anything we want to share about baby chicks leaving the nest!

If you'd like to read more about my goodbye with Kevin, I invite you to register for, and join the Flock. It's free, it's fun, and it's a special place where you can go when you want to write something that you can share, but just not share with the whole world...


  1. It was hard for me to tell my middle son goodbye, and he's only 15 minutes away! It's so quiet without him!

  2. funny how we crave the quiet and then hate it! Glad he's nearby...

  3. What a cutie he is (and was!), and where does that time go?

  4. I seem to have gotten worse instead of better on my second year of dropping my daughter off to college in Florida. what gives?
