Leaving the Nest

Time for me to fly
Oh, I've got to set myself free
Time for me to fly
That's just how it's got to be 

Chase and Sarah

This afternoon Sarah is heading to Florida to pursue her love of photography and also to further her education. She was accepted into the bachelor's photography program at UCF and has spent the last three weeks getting the last loose ends tied together.

Sarah has never left home before so these are scary and exciting times for her (and also for Dale). Not sure how Dale will be when she flies back from Florida on Saturday, but we're here for her. Her baby is finally ready to leave the nest. She's got a good head on her shoulders and I think Dale has done a fantastic job in raising an intelligent, talented, beautiful daughter.

Chase is not too happy that Sarah is moving south. He's having a hard time with good-byes lately. We're just going to keep reminding ourselves she'll be back in December, and now we have a really good reason to head to Florida next summer.

Lots of luck, Sarah! You're going to be deeply missed up here.


  1. Congratulations to Sarah, that is quite an accomplishment. The best of luck.xx

  2. Good byes are always hard. Congrats to Sarah!
