We've been away from home nearly two weeks. We left on the 16th to take our oldest to college in Oklahoma City. She's ready to be gone - she's not quite 18, graduated HS at 16 and spent a year at home - she's more than ready to be gone.
Her boyfriend is at college with her. He turns 18 tomorrow. She turns 18 next month.
All that to say this...
his parents are giving them both a skydiving lesson for their birthdays. On Saturday, my daughter will jump out of an airplane at 10,000 feet, free-fall for 45 seconds, then spend about 10 minutes floating to the ground. We have to sign a release of liability, have it notarized, and send it to Oklahoma...and I'm more than a little nervous about the whole thing.
So help calm me, please. Who's been skydiving? Should I be worried? Should I even let her do this? Is she too young? AUUUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH!
