a new phase
my son left today for a summer internship in washington dc. this is the first time steve and i will be without kids for more than a couple days in 24 years. yes, you read that correctly. eva is 24, and joseph is 18, and we, well, we spent a lot of time together as a family. we took our kids on all our vacations. and we never realized until this week that we haven’t been without the kids for 24 years. oh yes, they would go away to camp, and go places with school and friends, but never at the same time. our two have a 5½ year age spread, so it was a little bit like raising two only children–they were never in the same school together, so they never had the same schedule. we have always had at least one kid with us for the past 24 years. until today.
