Ready, Set, Don’t go…

Saturday, we will take the youngest of our four kids off to college.  He has decided on UW-Stevens Point but has not yet declared a major.  Tonight,  we had had his favorite dinner… tacos (of all things!), and all of our family came for dinner.   We are all excited for him but at the same time, we will miss him terribly, but it is time for him to leave Door County and little Egg Harbor and set his sights on bigger and better things.    Watch out college… here comes Joe!

I love this song by Billy Ray Cyrus… it  is exactly how I am feeling right now…

He’s gotta do what he’s gotta do
And I’ve gotta like it or not
He’s got dreams too big for this town
And he needs to give ’em a shot
Whatever they are

Looks like he’s all ready to leave
Nothing left to pack
There ain’t no room for me in that car
Even if he asked me to tag along
God I gotta be strong

He’s at the startin’ line of the rest of his life
As ready as he’s ever been
Got the hunger and the stars in his eyes
The prize is his to win
He’s waitin’ on our blessings before he hits that open road
Baby get ready
Get set
Don’t go

He says things are fallen into place
Feels like they’re fallen apart
I painted this big ol’ smile on my face
To hide my broken heart
If only he knew
This is where I don’t say what I want so bad to say

This is where I want to but I won’t get in the way
Of him and his dreams
And spreadin’ his wings

He’s at the startin’ line of the rest of his life
As ready as he’s ever been
Got the hunger and the stars in his eyes
The prize is his to win
He’s waitin’ on our blessings before he hits that open road
Baby get ready
Get set
Don’t go

Joe, we know you will do just fine… we will miss you so much, but in a good way… and please sweetheart , don’t forget to change your sheets and wash your underwear.

Love always,

Mom + Dad
