So my daughter is about to graduate from high school. I can’t believe how fast the time flew (although everyone warned me it would) and I’m kidding myself if I think four years of college isn’t going to fly by just as fast or faster. She’ll be an adult, looking for a job – hopefully one that she enjoys and from which she derives great fulfillment (and pays the bills). These last few weeks, I’ve worried. Did I do a good job? Is she ready? Prepared? Did our homeschool/unschool/independent study way of doing things prepare her well enough for college and the years beyond?
And then I read things she writes, like her most recent blog post below, and I take a deep breath and feel the worry slipping away (a little). She’s got a good head on her shoulders and she has strong communication skills and the ability to think things through. Her priorities are in order and I can’t help but believe that she is going to be just fine. Because of who she is, not what I did or didn’t do.
