Missing Elisabeth

We drove our daughter to college last weekend.

The culmination of an eighteen year journey. Raising Elisabeth has been the most wonderful experience of my life.

Though sometimes filled with trepidation. But she is riding that motorcycle with a physician. A friend of ours and the father of one of her closest friends. She has a good head on her shoulders.

Here she is with Dad. On our street. He is a landscape painter, she is going to art school.
Kids these days grow up multi-tasking.
Elisabeth loved the ancient stones of Ireland, which she saw on her trip there last spring. She photographed Newgrange, which is over 5,000 years old.
She also loves gardens, and photographed this Japanese garden in Ireland.
She was taught to knit in a Waldorf/Steiner school when she was ten. These mittens are very warm, I commandeered them.
And when Elisabeth packed for school, she packed this hat I knit for her.
We are so happy and excited to send her off on this next big adventure. And the internet is a great tool for keeping in touch with family. But we do miss having her around.

Yes, it is all good. And we are happy send her off. Scott's trying hard not to cook for three.

I love this. And we miss her too. And we're proud of all three of you. See you Sunday!
