She did it! It was a close call too. She had a decent GPA, but one state standardized test almost ruined it all. Almost. The day before she was to walk to receive a "Certificate of Completion" instead of a Diploma we found out she passed the state test she was having trouble with.
My husband and I cried that day we found out, we cried the day she walked. She moved out when school ended for seniors, and we were crying then. It is so hard to let go and say "Go! Hope you do well." You kinda still want to be around to save the day. Now the house feels off. It's down to three of us. In four years it will be just my husband and I.
It's been so long since it was just the two of us. I wonder if we know how to "couple" anymore. Will it be weird? Will it be sad? Will be OK? I'm sure new routines will set in, I just hope we don't end up staring at each other wondering what to do with ourselves. I hope we explore and grow. I want to travel. I think it will be unsettling at first, but I think we will do alright.
