Little girl going to phoenix , arizona
Well, my daughter is on the Mock Trial Team at her high school, and recently they won the state championship. So, this weekend, she is boarding a plane to Phonenix to participate in the National Championship.
This is the first time she will be going somewhere that far without me there to watch out for her. I have taught her as much as I can about personal safety, she is working on her 2nd Black belt in Chinese Kenpo, she stands 5 foot 11 and weighs about 120 pounds, and can chunk a bale of hay on the top pile of the wagon, but I still will worry about her the entire time she is gone.
I cannot attend due to work obligations. I guess I am just starting to feel old...in one way I am happy to see her getting her legs under herself, but in another way I feel like I am becoming obsolete. Can anyone relate? This is a chapter in life I guess we all go through, but I would really like to skip this one.
