Her brothers have been talking about it for weeks. And finally it's getting close.
In two weeks, my Wonderful Smart Beautiful Daughter will pack up her clothes and books, take one last walk around her neighborhood in European City With the Bridge That Used to Fall Down, and say goodbye to the flat where she and her friends have lived all semester. She'll take one last walk along the river at night, looking out at the lights of the Government Buildings That Look Pretty at Night. She'll have one last drink at the pub, make one last run to the little grocery store to buy digestive biscuits, and take the long escalator at the Tube station one last time.
And then she's coming home to us.
