The House Gets Quieter



After a few raw emotions, 20 memorized (and long) scripture verses, months spent working on a musical, and too much confusion to keep straight, my girl left with her church youth group for New York City today. Although I would have preferred a differently structured trip, I am proud of her hard work and excited for her.

Travel safely, sweet girl.

awww. She is going to have a wonderful time. You are great parents for letting her venture out. Do you have any nails left?

Your whole family is just a traveling group!! This experience will change both of you, but I am sure for the better.

Enjoy your quiet time.

Hard to let them leave the house sometimes, isn't it??? She looks ready and everything will be alright!

I am sure she will have a great time - and I am sure that you have raised her well so she will make good decisions if need be.

Hey Caution! My son was on a mission trip to NYC last week. He had an AWESOME time and came back spiritually and emotionally charged. I'll pray for the same for your daughter!
