It has been a while since I posted anything. Getting the kids off to school, moved into the dorms and all that. It was not as terrifying for me as I thought it would be. The kids seem to be adjusting to their new lives, although they are homesick. I miss the noise and chaos of having them around, but can now fix things around the house without worrying whatever I repair will be broken within an hour (they were not that bad, but 18-year-olds can be quite rough on things).
Luckily they are not too far away, Leif is at UC Davis and Aurelia UC Santa Cruz. The trip to Davis is not too exciting, but always glad to see Leif. The trip to Santa Cruz is just wonderful, the California coastline is truly spectacular.
