>> Friday, January 18, 2008 – On the homefront
We now have six children at home. Our eldest moved out. She says she needed to stretch her wings and experience the real world. Evidently, this was in the works for many months, but we found out only a couple short weeks before she moved out. Even her friends did not have a clue until everything was all set in place. Looking back, she has always been like this. Whenever we would go for family hikes, she would go way ahead of us - sometimes so far that we couldn't see her. We would tell her to stick with us and she would for a while, but then would venture off again. This has been the pattern of her life. We should have known. Fly free, Hannah-bird, I hope you land on solid ground. We love you!
