Two Girls Gone. One Quiet Home Left Behind

  • Print

The house is once again quiet.  My baby girls are back at school.  We moved Kierra back to Ohio State two weekends ago.  This past weekend we took the massive road trip to Central New York to move Aimee into Syracuse.

Michelle still cries each time we pull away from campus.  I still try not to take it personal.

Our girls are thriving.  I can't imagine being a parent who has a kid far away that is struggling. I just can't imagine.  That would be extremely difficult.

Both girls are now Juniors.  We are half way though.  God willing, they are each halfway through. 

I miss my girls, but I’m glad they’re ok.  And the quiet house isn’t all bad.
