13 year old to old for hugs

My 13 year old tells me today that she does not like hugs. This pretty much hurt because I am ALL about hugs.  I find myself asking, if she doesnt like hugs is she upset about something?  Will she tell me if she is?  I hope she doesnt push me away.  Later she falls and hurts her hand, first thing she does when I get to her...curled up in my arms for a hug.

My kids are not so little anymore

My step son is now 20, and will be graduating from a culinary program this May.   I have known him since he was 4.  He said he is going to take the summer off from school and will go back in the fall.  I'm sure he will but it still makes me nervous.  Mostly because I never did & I want him to do better than his dad and I.

Our middle daughter is now 13 and has been invited to go to another state with her best friend and her family.  I completely trust this family, they are great people and teach their daughters the same values and morals as we try to teach our kids.  My problem is now with her going with them, its with her going period.  I'm jealous that we can not take her on a family vacation because of money, rather she is going to enjoy that time w/ another family.  Hubby says to let her go and experience it, my heart says thats my baby going so far away.  I'm slowly being talked into it because she is growing up.

Our youngest daughter is 11, 12 next month has a boyfriend (with our permission) and texts ALL the time ( I read them all & we talk about them)  Since the older one will be going w/ her friend we have to find something fun for the younger one.  We have decided on her going to the grandparents and friends house for those 2 weeks.  We have also talked about her taking a train since her sister will be flying. 

Like I said, they are getting so big and I need to start letting them live their lives but I dont want them hurt or anything in the process.
