My youngest child has started her senior year of high school. How the heck did that happen? She's also decided she wants to be a pilot and has started ground school. She only got her driver's license a month or so ago.
One of my sons is at the University of Dallas and is now a senior there!
Another son is attending graduate school in London!
My oldest daughter and her husband are in Atlanta where my son-in-law is completing chiropractor school.
How did my children come to be living so far away?
I don't like having them so far away. It feels unnatural. I miss them so much.
At least those in Dallas/London/Atlanta are all in school. Maybe they will wander back to Michigan as they graduate.
My oldest is out of school and settled in Indiana. At least it's in the Midwest and only a few hours from here!
The hardest is having a child overseas. It's just SO FAR. There's an entire ocean between us! And with the world becoming more and more unstable, more crazy, I really would feel more at ease if all my children were at least in this country. But my London son is doing good things over there and it is his plan to come back to the U.S. when his degree is complete.
My second oldest daughter is going to school locally and is living at home!! Woohooo. So nice that she is still here. I love having my children around.
But...I realize it is unlikely that they will end up permanently here in Michigan. I'm hoping for at least a couple though. Or a couple who are at least in the Midwest?
