Kat is headed to the Sasquatch Music Festival at The Gorge in George (Washington) this weekend. Maybe it's my "child of the 60's" mentality, but I can't help but worry. OK, "worry" is probably too strong a word. After all, she's going with six strapping young men, good guys who have been friends of hers for years (and who we know), so I know she'll be well taken care of.

And I know this will be no Woodstock, or even Day on the Green (my memory of such events!), although I know I'd be completely naive to believe that there won't be drugs and alcohol there. But this child of mine, this youngest, is now a full-fledged adult -- and one with a good head on her shoulders and tons of common sense -- so I gave her a hug and a kiss this morning and wished her well, knowing that she'll have a blast for four full days, and will come back on Tuesday, dying for a shower, some sleep and some good, healthy food!

oooh music festivals are sooo fun. I don't think there is something to worry about. She's old and wise enough.

And look at that beaming smile on her! I had to comfort a mom whose son is leaving Sunday to go visit my Danish 'son' in Denmark. Her son has never traveled outside the States before. I know Danish son's family and know her son will be fine. It's scary to let go sometimes. (Son going to DK is 20).
