Parents of the HS Class of 2012 - New beginnings

edited January 2014 in Class of 20xx Community
Here we go! We've left high school drama, SAT scores, AP study guides, and 6:45 alarm clocks behind! Here's to four (or more?!) years ahead of texts asking for more money, profs who don't follow the syllabus, and shopping for summer storage!

My hope is that all of our kids go out into the world and try new things, keep integrity in all of their relationships, stay up until 4:00 am figuring out the meaning of life, and step out of their comfort zone some. All while studying really hard. :)

Welcome to all the veterans of this thread: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/parents-forum/658245-parents-high-school-class-2012-a.html

And welcome to anyone just jumping in!

    This is an exciting new thread and chapter for all of us AND mostly for our kiddos.

    Here's hoping we all survive the transition and most importantly our kids are happy and thrive at their new schools!!!

    ^ditto that. I have been absent from "our" other thread for a while, and that's a story for another time.

    My best wishes to all the parents and students on the next stop on the journey.

    It's hard to believe the 2016's are starting to launch.

    D has found her roommate and the other two suitemates on FB. All the girls are from New York or New Jersey so she will be known as the girl from SoCal which I told her will help her stand out!

    We have lots of clearing out to do before we begin packing. Good luck to all launching this week.

    I guess you all should add my D to the August 24 launch date. We're driving and visiting some family on the way, so we leave home earlier. And we will return to an empty nest since D2 will be at boarding school How strange.

    D is busy meeting new college friends (facebook really changes things from "meet your roommate on move in day), while spending time with high school friends and family. It's exciting and stressful!

    14 days and counting. So sad our family of 5 will be no more on a regular basis. So happy because DS has a bright future and will have a wonderful 4 years. So happy. So sad. So happy.....

    We are all moving on! Went to a meet up in my state last nite for the U of Roch freshman class of 2016 so we parents could meet and the students could too. So it is time for this group to enter college mode!

    Dawned on me at dinner last night that there will be an empty chair at our table. Now THAT hit me harder than most of the other reminders of his impending launch!!!!

    But happier thoughts. Got something from the Parents Council today! Not "just" a form letter, but tailored to us since he's a double legacy kid. (It will be interesting to find out how many others there are.) Still waiting on roommate assignment!

    I like to think of it in terms of the nuclear family decreasing in order that the extended family might one day increase. It's all in the spin. :)

    Yes - I remember it hitting me hard when I set the table for just 4 people the first time!

    Lakemom - wish we could have done a meet up, but none were close enough. And really, we are all so busy right now!

    Our meetup was great for letting D get a little more excited about school. It was definitely worth the drive, though it would have been nice to be a little closer.

    A month from today I'll be flying home sans my baby. I know I get her a little longer than many of you. But it still hurts me.

    Hugs to all of us who are letting go in the next couple of weeks!!

    today is my S's 18th birthday -he is my youngest. This, coupled with his leaving for college, has me all emotional today. I can't believe my children areall technically adults...Does not seem possible. He is in a great state of mind and very eager, yet appropriately nervous, for the start of school. I am going to miss him.

    I'm hawkeyes55, my son is going off to Temple (Not private, not ancient, and not religious, even though everyone I've talked to seems to think it's all of those 3 things) on August 23rd could someone add my S to the list?

    Also my S had a bit of drama in regards to whether he should go or not, but I'll just leave that to the other thread. Seems quite high-schoolish.

    So yeah, I'm looking forward to him going off and exploring his interests, even if he isn't 100% convinced.
