Visiting Colleges

Yesterday, we all went over to Wingate University for Scholars Day. We heard from the President of the University, several deans and professors. We visited with students, took tours and went to the bookstore. The typical college day visit. However, yesterday, we paid the deposit. Our daughter is now officially going to attend Wingate University.

We stopped at an outlet mall on the way home. We decided that we would shop for about 2 hours and then head home for dinner out. My husband went one way while my daughter and I went the other. We went inside her favorite store to browse for a bit. She totally planned to find a new shirt to take back with her.

I found her  a totally cool coat that looked wonderful so I just had to buy it for her. As I was paying an exorbitant amount of money for this thing, I realized that this would probably be the last time we shopped together in this store. After she goes to college, she will more than likely "outgrow" the store.  The joy of buying her something so perfect for her personality was replaced by sadness. My little girl is growing up. Time is passing way too quickly.
