    Congratulations!

    Think about all things you will be now able to do any time you want, not only time you can.

    Occasions like this can be bittersweet for a parent; you are joyful for the success of your child, but also (understandably) a bit sad that they will not be around as much anymore.

    Congratulations to the both of you!

    Edit: As Moonbear stated, the adjustment will be quick. :smile: Best wishes to Mollymae and her academic pursuits!

    Congrats to you and your daughter (even though you can't possibly be old enough to have a daughter entering college. :wink:). I think that empty nest syndrome thing only lasts about as long as the kids are homesick after going off to college, which is to say that before a week is out, you'll be running around partying again. :biggrin:

    Mollymae, did mom try to steer you to engineering at the University of Maine, Orono? They have a wonderful research/development program in composites there.

    Thanks everyone :) I'm sure I will feel homesick too, but I still can't wait!

    I was always close to my family, and because I could hitchhike home on weekends (when I didn't have paying gigs lined up) and holidays, I chose UMO. I had math scholarship offers at MSU and UofA, and a promising deal at MIT, but family kept me close. Air-travel was very expensive in the 60's and I never could have afforded to get home much from out-of-state universities.

    You'll have new friends, new opportunities, and your studies, so time will fly. Don't forget to call Mama Basil regularly and keep her in the loop. She'll probably feel the separation more than you will.

    Parents, especially good ones, are a rare breed.

    I hope she remembers to study! Reflect on mementos of her around the house.
