My son is a senior in high school and will be going away to college in August. Oh, I forgot to mention, 6 hours away to college. I knew this day was coming and thought I would be able to deal with it but as it gets closer to him graduating it's really starting to sink in. I thought about moving up there but quickly changed my mind knowing he needs to his space. It's going to be hard not having him at home. I need some help with this one. Any advice from mom's who have experienced this would be greatly appreciated.

How is it going? My only son just started his Senior year of high school and it's only September and already I'm freaking out about him going away to college. He picked a school 6 hrs away also?
