It will be a good long time before we are empty nesters, but we're on the road to a new stage of life here. Bub will be leaving the nest come September. It's exciting and scary for all of us! I think his sister, Peach will miss him the most of all his sisters. They are best friends and she happily follows in his footsteps for many things. She might be a little lost for a little while, but she'll find her way again, and I'm sure they'll Skype each other regularly. Hip hip hooray for modern technology!
After much deliberation, a trip to the University Fair, and prayer, the Boy narrowed it down to three universities. He has heard from two -- and the third one he isn't worried about because it was his last pick anyway. Of the two who have accepted him, the one he has not seen. It's his second choice, but I think he might still go and check the place out just to make sure. His first choice however, also happens to be the Engineer's alma mater. Bub is not going into his dad's program, but I think the Engineer is pretty pleased that he's planning on going to the same school.
Because the Boy is social justice minded, extroverted, very artistic, and totally loves the idea of running his own business, he it taking Global Business and Digital Arts at the University of Waterloo. (Soon I am going to get him to do a couple of guest posts for me. (One will be about his art from this year and one will be about the mission work he will be doing in Nicaragua in March.) To say that he is excited, just might be an understatement. :o)
Have a blessed weekend!
