I’m going to be rearranging the blog. Slowly. I’ve been working on a few features that I want to add, and will try to get back toward what I originally intended this site to be. If things disappear, they might reappear elsewhere. Those changes won’t be immediate. Please let me know if there are specific things you find helpful.
My oldest will be starting his freshman year of college soon, and the summer has been crazy trying to help him get ready. The younger kids already miss him, and he’s not even gone yet. My husband and I are both oldest children and have no experience with an older sibling leaving the nest. We’d like to make this transition easy for everyone but have no idea what to do, so any tips you have would be most welcome. Right now, our plan is for the entire family to drive him to his school and spend a couple of days so that everyone knows where he’ll be. We’ll also have the younger kids think of nice things we can do for him, and send periodic care packages – within reason, since I don’t want to set an expensive precedent.
There will continue to be fewer posts, at least until we get child #1 settled in his dorm. After that, there will continue to be fewer posts, and the blog will get a new look.
Hope your summer is going well!
