Thoughts on a quiet house

When they were little, they used to run around making outrageous amounts of noise... but now it's too quiet around here.

I used to wonder if I would ever get a moments peace... but now they're gone.

I used to look forward to them growing up, moving out, moving on. Now I look forward to them coming home to visit, and hoping they will stay for a while.

I've sent three kids off to college this week.

Its been exciting, fun, anxious, and melancholy. I've laughed, cried...

Now its just me, himself, and doodlebug.

It's so quiet around here...
