The time has come. Our Youngest has announced to us her plans for the fall. After taking a year off from any kind of school, she is ready to do something. She has told us she wants to go to bible school in the fall. I knew something would come sooner or later but I was totally unprepared for the feelings of panic it raised up within me. Panic for me! Our last to jump out of the nest. And while I'm thrilled for her and the route she is going, the thought of no more of my own children in the house is making my heart clench! Ok, yes technically, Son is still home but he is usually gone for 2-3 week stints at a time and home for 1 or 2, so in my mind that doesn't count. And that could change to permanently gone at any time. Sigh. How did this time come so fast? It felt like just yesterday I was prying their fingers off from a death grip around my neck when I was trying to leave them in kindergarten? Does anyone know how I can go back in time a bit?
