    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.

    They are always "Daddy's little girl!" You can't help but worry about them, it goes with the job of being a Dad.

    I really feel for guys with daughters.

    I let my boy run like a wild dog, but fair or not, I can assure you that I'd feel much differently if he was a she. 'Just said a quick prayer for your daughter's safety this weekend.

    Yeah, I can relate for sure. Phoenix is a good town, and she will come home safe. You've taught her well and she will be awesome.

    I looked up where the event is being held, and it's right downtown... no major worries. Lots of stuff to do, especially with the D-Backs in town for a few days, and the weather so far is mild (for the desert) - mid-90s for highs.

    Next time, come on here with her and we'll get out to Rio Salado range!
