"Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school. Back to school. Back to school. Well, here goes nothing." -Billy Madison
I only teared up a little when Derek left this morning. Ok...maybe a few tears got a away...but I wanted to make it as painless as possible for both of us. Sad day. Off he goes to college. BYU-Utah. Of course I'm happy for him. But I'll miss him and his quirky remarks...his fighting with Annie...not so much... I'd like to think that my brothers and I are close...I know not the closest of close...we didn't pour our hearts and souls out to one another, but there is something definatly there I'm gonna miss while they are off getting edumacated. I'll miss laughing with them...and at them. I'm sure they'll have stuff to share with me every once in a while...but you know...
I'm sure it will be the same when Devyn leaves in a week. And I'll write again when he does.
It's gonna be quiet around here...not to quiet...there are still 2 little girls which the world revolves around...if you asked them...Poor dad...so many girls to deal with...Annie has a long list of sports she's gonna do just to keep dad on his toes :)
I'll have school starting up at the end of next month to keep me busy...to keep my mind and fingers busy. Always have to be busy.
I'm really proud of my brothers, even if they are leaving me hear alone...I'll forgive them one day. I love them lots. And I probably don't tell them that enough, but I hope they know that.
