Empty Nest-Revisited 2007
Well it seems to happen this time of year...every year. We just took our youngest back to school for her junior year.
Where do the years go?
It was quite a summer for the "youngster". Dad put on his "bad boy" hat and forced the "learn to drive a car" issue, resulting in a car for her. Today was the longest road trip she has driven and she did well! She drove the 2.5 hours from Oak Ridge to East Tennnessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. Her only complaint was her foot was going to sleep.
We've retained a bit of her in her cat, and our Grand-kittie, Emma Lee (aka Penny). She was afraid the apartment folks would be inspecting the place early in the year and pets are strictly forbidden. That's my girl....."Rebel with some sort of a cause".
Best wishes for yet another successful year at college.
We'll try to hold down the fort....and the ol' empty nest.
