Quinte, On. real estate agent: Well, It was A good Weekend

Well, It was A good Weekend

This is a little late. Thanksgiving weekend was a couple of weekends ago, but I have been a little slow in organizing photographs. My computer crashed, so there were a few days where I had to use the public use clunker in the office. I don't download personal photos to that computer.

Anyhow, the kids came back for the Thanksgiving weekend, and we had a very relaxing time. Malcolm came back with a fancy new haircut and Sarah came back sporting her usual smile. It was almost as if they had never been anywhere, they just settled back into their normal routine very quickly. The weekend, alas, went by very quickly, and Malcolm took the bus back to his new home, and Sarah hopped on the train back to hers.

We managed to have quite a bit of fun while they were here though, and I think they were happy for the break. They did seem to do a lot of growing up in the few weeks that they were away. Even though they are big city kids now, there's still enough country in them to have some good old fashioned country fun.

*Sigh*, now it's back to talking on the phone and Facebook.

Oh well, Christmas really isn't that far off now.

Malcolm - Malcolm and Sarah look very happy to be back home.  It must have been a nice break for them.  How are they adjusting to city life and university?  You're right - it will be Christmas before you know it, and time to make another turkey!

Malcolm,

 

It's lots of fun to celebrate Thanksgiving, particularly when the kids have been away at school.

How nice to have the kids return to fill your life again with parenting of the adult kind.  I am sure the conversations are fun and lively.

Sorry I missed this post till now Malcolm.  I am so glad that your children were both home for Thanksgiving.  And I am seeing my future, just eleven short years from now in the feelings your words convey.

I enjoyed my children's college years tremendously.  It was a wonderful experience to see them move from children to young adults.
