Mom and Dad are driving the littlest one off to college today.

Kimmie's the first sibling to really go away away for college. Selfishly, I wanted her to stay, but she's always said that she would be the one to break the mold and test out uncharted territory.

I'm so proud of her and can't wait to see how her life shapes to God's will and plan...but I can't help but think that it won't be the same around here without her.(I mean, who else can fill a room with such an infectious laugh?)

The left-behind-sisters, wanted to do something to send her off, so we planned a couple of little "goodbye" projects. 

First, we made her lots and lots of hand stamped postcards. We used both my handmade stamps and some store bought ones and stamped one side of different sized colored paper.  On the other side, we simply drew some lines for the address and a line to separate the note from the address. Easy! Then all we had to do was buy some stamps, and make her promise she'd write!

Our second project was to put together a scrapbook of pictures and notes from all of her family members... logistically, this was a little tough, but so worth it in the end.

Love you Kimmie! We miss you already.


  1. Wow, what a lovely send-off! There's a sister who knows she's loved. :)
