Parent's emotional journey in the college process

Today in the Washington Post

My son just graduated from college but that article took me right back to that time of our lives. And, yes, it still makes me teary.

We are taking a long transition process. My D choose to go to the flagship in town (which is also the cheapest option for us) but live in dorm. So she is a kind of away but can come home every other week or so. Now we communicate mostly online or messaging.
