Well, we saw the big brother off for his big trip to Colorado and each child had his or her own reaction. The youngest (toughest) son cried and blamed it on the heat. The middle son asked for God's blessing. And the girl child said, "I'm glad Anthony's not here (at dinner tonight)." Well. All honest, and all different.
Mama still has a heavy heart. God help me next year when he's leaving for good.
