Time flies when you are having fun. That is the old adage. But I really do believe it. It has been fun to have all the kids home for the summer and it seems like summer has come and gone so fast. Last year we sent my oldest off to college and the house seemed somewhat empty with her not at home. Just three kids and a wife to cook for, we could take the smaller cars on trips instead of the mini van. It was weird.
Now this year I do not have just one going off to college but two! Gulp. Both the girls are heading to school and I am not sure how the house will respond when the testosterone level is three to one over the ladies. I am sure my wife will keep the house in balance if you know what I mean but it still going to be weird not having those gals in the house.
I am so proud of both of the girls for the way they live their lives, and the young ladies they are becoming. I am also somewhat scared to send them off into the big bad world but have to trust that the lessons they learned in our house will serve them for the rest of their lives.
So next week Trudy and I are one step closer to having an empty nest... or at least another bedroom we can put things in.
