It's starting

The emptying of the nest. 4 kids. More and more often I find us home with an almost empty house. Like tonight for instance.

The oldest daughter and the Son&Heir are both out working evening shifts.

#3 Child, The Divine Miss M is out at a friend's till late. That leaves a pretty quiet house. Just one kid at home with us...

They've started spreading their wings, taking responsibility, going off to work. Leaving a quiet house. Moving on. Before we know it -- will have moved on.

One day you watch them walk away from the car as you drop them for Kindergarten -- and you blink...

Sort of a "Peggy Sue Got Married" moment.
