My eldest attended a mid major about an hour or so away for undergrad, and then a high academic halfway across the country for grad school. Once he got past Soph year of college, I didn't see him any more or less when he was halfway across the country.
I mean c'mon, if you were 20 years oldwould you want to hang out with Dad on winter break watching NFL games or go to Miami with your buddies?!
I definitely do cherish the time I have with him though.
