The Month of Lasts
The kids grew up with Harry and we celebrated many milestones with him. HP was the first thick book my son ever read, the first series we actually waited for the release and even pre-ordered them so we could have it on hand ASAP and the first series of movies we not only anticipated, but all eagerly awaited their release.
Just as we said goodbye to Harry Potter, we will also be saying goodbye to our youngest as she leaves for college next weekend. The weekend following, her brother will be leaving for college, and for the first time in many years of having a house filled with loving children, we will truly be alone. I still can't believe that those beautiful children are now amazing adults. When did all that happen?
Yes, it is a month of lasts...The last time we made a purchase from Borders, the last time we will see a new Harry Potter on the big movie screen, and our last child saying goodbye to childhood as she skips out the door and plunges head first into campus life.
