The holidays are over and it’s time to reflect back on the past semester. Hard to believe that Ruthie has finished her first semester at Union University and Lane is entering the second semester of her junior year. I am not sure I am ready for all this talk about grad school, the GRE and graduating from college. It’s already in my planner that on May 11, 2013, my oldest daughter graduates from college. Yes, Millsaps already has posted the academic calendar for 2012-2013. Where in the world is the time going?
But let me backtrack a bit. Yes, Ruthie has finished her first semester of college and on the whole, it was a great semester. Lots of new friends for her, the fun and joy of being a part of the Zeta Tau Alpha organization, dates, parties, and oh, yes, the studying. Yes, you really do have to study in college. It’s quite the lesson to learn that college is NOT a continuation of high school, isn’t it?
For me, it’s been quite an education having two daughters in college. Wow, I have learned a lot. Walking the line between two daughters in different sororities, not comparing schools, giving my youngest more freedom, no pushing my oldest to hard … I promise you, it has been quite eye opening. And I am not so sure that I have been successful at being the mom of two college women. Have I given them the tools they need to face grownup situations? Can they really make it without me?
And now the second semester is underway at Millsaps for Lane and Ruthie starts back in a week. Time to gear myself up for all the fun ahead. Wait … am I ready for another semester of two in college?? Standby… I’ll let you know quickly!
