My big girl is here for 3 more months, and then she leaves home for college.  She has been an amazing help to us over the last few years.  She is a role model and a mentor to her younger siblings.  I am treasuring each and every day.  I hope she is up for lots of text messages and phone calls.  I am already sad, but getting so excited for her.  Heavy sigh, I am going to enjoy every minute of the next few months.  We raise them to grow up and be independent.  But it's so hard to let go.  The good news is, that I have 3 months before I actually have to let her go.  I have plenty of time to remain in denial.  I feel better now.
