Filled Under: ,

Adjusting to having college kids

It is tech week.  That means my daughter is in a play, and she has been in dress rehearsals all week, followed by numerous showings from Thursday through Saturday.  Normally during tech week, I fill up my car with gas, and prepare myself to fill it for a second time.  That is followed by buying tons of fast food as she will be "living" at the theatre that week, and also helping out with the productions costumes.  In the past, this also meant that my son was living in the tech room of the theatre, and so they were involved in the same activity.

This tech week it is something else entirely, as it has nothing to do with me.  Yes, she is living at the theatre, but I am not driving her anywhere.  I am not buying fast food. I am not working on costumes... at the single most crushing aspect that I am having a hard time to swallow- I am only going to see the show once!  Normally, even if there are 5 or 6 shows in 3 days, I see every single show and make it a point to  sit at a different spot in the audience each time so I can soak up every detail.

But not this time.  Instead, I am sending supporting texts, hoping that she will read them before each show.  I am crossing my fingers and toes for "good luck", and I am waiting until Saturday when I can use my comp tickets (for parents), to see her on stage.  Hopefully, I will also get a chance to stop by my son's college to give him a hug before going to my daughter's show.  And... not only is my son not working on the show, but he "doesn't have time" to see it either.

So enjoy the homeschooling years while you can.  They do eventually grow up.

In the meanwhile, I am officially, "homeschooling" my nephew for the next 6 months as he is studying for the GED, but also wants a portfolio to help him get into college.  I think the positive peer pressure of seeing his little cousin (my daughter) enter college is making him want the same thing.
