My parents and youngest sister Lina drove to Utah with my middle sister Karina this past week. The really sad thing is that on Monday when they start heading back to Georgia they'll be leaving Karina there. She's starting college!! This is so crazy! Is this really happening? It's weird being a big brother to three younger sisters. I get overwhelmed with the feeling that I just don't want them to grow up. I think it is a protective instinct that comes from subconsciously wanting to protect them from the harder things adult or young adult life brings. Or maybe I just can't accept change. Either way I get so worked up thinking about it. I know that they need to grow up and date, go to college, and have their own experiences with things, but for some reason it is still really difficult for me. Lettitia laughs at me because I get bent out of shape hearing about my sisters dating and doing things with boys. She just doesn't understand. They're my LITTLE sisters! They're not supposed to like boys.
Well, Lettitia is right, I know that I'm pretty ridiculous, and since I can't stop them from growing up or liking boys I guess I'll just have to deal with it. I love Karina and will miss her, but I'm excited for the experiences and fun she'll have on her own. Now, I've got to come up with a plan to keep Lina away from boys. We'll see how that goes!
