I knew the day would come, but I'm thankful it came slowly!
Our youngest, Gavin flew the nest tonight.
He gave us one day warning, although he's been hinting for
several weeks that he is thinking about moving in with 3 of his friends.
All have been friends since high School.
Gavin is our adult child who still "lives" at home... but not really.
For the last couple of years, (when he's not at work), he's hanging out with friends, they stay so busy with "disk" (it's like frisbee golf), bowling, movies, watchin' games, and....
you know those things young guys do.
He would come home every night to sleep,
I would sometimes see him in the morning before he left for work,
and he usually spent Sunday afternoons at home with us.
Even though it felt like he really wasn't here that much...
I still knew he would be home every night.
So yeah.... He did it, he flew!
Lots of emotions, Happy-Proud-Sad-Proud-Worried(a little)-Proud.....
I know it's what we wish for our children, we raise them to be responsible adults,
to be on their own, and to experience "life" without mom & dad.
It's been hard with each one as they've departed the homestead,
but I have to say they are great kids and we are proud of all three!
Loading Tyler's van
(Tyler played football with Gavin, and also threw disk & shotput in high school).
A big work van made it an easy move!!!
There he goes.... Gulp
Gavin invited Rick and I to follow him over to see his new home.
He is living in a 4 bedroom house, about 4 miles from us.
Pretty cool for these four friends.
The next chapter.... So happy for my boy!
