Meg is on the plane

Destination - Spain!

Time - 1 year.

Purpose - Teaching English to ages 6-12

(Zach, Meg & Hillary)

Meg got on the plane at 5:00 am this morning. I can't help but cry as I sit here and type this blog post out. I am going to miss her greatly. I am so proud beyond words of the woman that she has become. It's going to be tough not being able to pick up the phone & call whenever I want to or send/receive text messages 10+ times a day!! She is going to be 4,000 miles away from me for a year! Before we left for the airport she left notes on the counter top one for each of us...her sister, Tori, me & her daddy. Needless to say, I cried my eyes out when I picked it up....and the first line I read was...."First of all, stop crying!" haha She knows me to well.

The hardest thing about being a mother is the letting go. I know she is 22 years old, an adult, but she will always be my little girl.
