I know that feeling too well. It's strange as the kids get older, you say good-bye and they say good-bye and it's fine. But the fine feels unfamiliar. We left the kids with a sitter a few weeks ago, the sitter had brought a friend and they had a board game out on the table before we even left. I had to force the kids to look me in the eyes and give me a hug goodbye. We were missing their bedtime and going out for the night and the kids were fine. Huh, I told Jay in the car, they really are growing up. He didn't reflect on it at all, but it took me a minute to shake off a very funny feeling!

Your T is such a beauty, I'm glad she had her camp out and that it went well. :-)

I expect we'll get used to the "fine" part before too long...

Thanks, Omaha!
