Monday. Kids slowly trickle back to school like introducing new fish to an aquarium. It’s been cold, but today the sun is out and we are supposed to have a high in the mid 70’s. Sam goes back to Grinnell on friday it’s 11:30 and he’s still asleep upstairs. It’s strange when kids grow up and come back home to visit. You want them around you so much but you also know they need to be away from home to grow. Henry wants to be somewhere else so badly but as a dad I feel he’s not ready. Sometimes the things he says hurts and knocks me for a loop me and it makes it hard for me to hold him close but I guess you just brush yourself off a bit and carry on.
