The eldest left today. We have a few more days with the youngest and will do our best to enjoy the time, as we have enjoyed every minute of the past three weeks. Of course, we are grateful that our girls are happy and successful where they go to school. And we are grateful that they have wonderful friends where they go to school (and here and elsewhere). And we appreciate all of the people who commend us on doing such an amazing job “teaching them to fly” that they are able to live far away and thrive on their own.
But saying goodbye is hard.
