He's Coming Home!
Posted 10/7/2010 11:13:00 AM

I can't believe it.. Jarrod is coming home for the first time since we dropped him of at school this past Labor Day. It's the longest he's ever been away from home. I know some would say that's not very long. There are some kids that go away to camp for the entire summer, or they're off at boarding school for months at a time. There are some college students that can't get back home until Thanksgiving. But for us, this has been a long stretch, and quite an adjustment. If you've been watching Cougar Town on TV, Courtney Cox's character, Jules, is struggling with the empty nest experience now that her son has left for college(only 20 minutes away!). I totally relate to what she's going through!

So now I wonder what it's going to be like to have him home for a few days. Is it going to be strange for him? Strange for us? Will everything fall into place and will it feel like he never went away? We'll find out. But I know one thing, it sure is going to be good to have him home.

    We wnet through this with four children. It is wonderful to have them home again. It is like they never left. Warning: When they leave again to return to college, it is as hard as the first time they left. This continues for what seems forever. It does get better eventually. You are loving parents and that is why it is so difficult. You should be proud.
