Dear Colleen: As our youngest son prepares for his senior year in high school I find myself already feeling weepy about what is to come. Our "baby" is going to be a senior and will be preparing to tackle college life! I took him for senior portraits the other day and found myself starting to get teary eyed just thinking about this phase in our lives coming to an end. A new phase will begin as our youngest joins his older brothers in the college phase and the late nights out. Do you ever get used to it? My husband and I are looking ahead to what the next few years of college life brings our sons with excitement for the future and hope that all the wonderful life lessons we have taught them will pay off!
