My Son, the College Student

Wow. I didn't think this would be so hard. I mean, he's been in SERBIA all summer, for Pete's sake. Up until the moment he pulled out of the driveway yesterday, I thought it would be no big deal. Then tears came from nowhere! I blamed it on allergies, on not feeling well, on being tired from the Block Party, on missing 2 hormones pills this week... but the truth is, I'm going to miss him like crazy.

Here he is the day he came home from the hospital. All 10 pounds of him.

Wasn't he a cutie pie???
Hunter and Willard watching cartoons. Willard actually liked them more than Hunter did.

On this day, he got into the baby powder. He denied it being the guilty party, but something tells me he was lying.

Look, Mom! No teeth!

This is the boy who can stand up and make a speech in front of hundreds of people with little or no notice, but can't find Chapel Hill Road in Decatur without a GPS. The same one who can organize an entire event, but can't clean his room. He can rub elbows with politicians in D.C. but just recently learned to cut up his own steak.
He's growing up now and I'm so proud of him. He's a kid and I know he'll make mistakes, but he knows God has a plan for him. I love you, Hunter!


  1. Took me back to when Nick hoo...

  2. What a sweet post, Amy! Makes me dread that day with my kiddos, but yall have done a great job and Hunter is sure to be the Big Man on Campus! I'm sure he will be home to visit soon with a GIANT bag of laundry :)

  3. Awwww! So sweet, Amy! Hunter is an amazing young man, and that's to his credit as well as his parents. You and Willard are my heroes. But you have just ruined my sinuses for the day!
