Empty nesters

Well, as of today, my wife and I are empty nesters. Joel and Rebecca (my oldest two) moved out today into their own apartment closer to downtown Mississauga.  It will be a change, for sure.   It will nice to have the extra room (I am typing this from my new office in David's old room.  Our youngest moved out in October).  Denita will find it hard, I know.  She poured so much of herself into the kids.  For the past couple of days whenever I asked how she was feeling, she simply said (without rancour), "I don't want to talk about  it." 

Now, as I look around the house and see the remnants of the move, the finality of it has come home to me.  My kids are grownup. 

I think we did a good job.
