Yesterday was a big day in the Crossgrove household. Our eldest child left for college. We packed up a car full of stuff and left for Millersville University...spent the day unpacking and organizing her room. After dinner, we posed for pictures outside the dorm and said goodbye. I am in my office today with the mix of emotion as I know she is ready to launch into this next stage of life, and at the same time, I have that low-grade anxiety of knowing that my child is stepping out on her own. As three of my four children are presently living outside of my home (one at college, and two in Honduras), I am learning to walk in faith and trust my children in the Lord's hands. We haven't heard anything new regarding the adoption, so we continue to wait. In the meantime, we are working on some fund raising ideas...there is the matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans, we have the 100 wishes quilt, Just Love Coffee, and we are doing a Krispe Kreme sale in September. I will post more about each of these later. Here are some picture of Ariana going off to college.
