Friday night. Both kids are away on an overnight band/orchestra school trip. They are in the capable hands of other parents and their music teachers.

The last time we were away from the kids for a night was more than a year ago when we had a concert opportunity we couldn’t refuse. Luckily, our neighbor helped us.

I honestly think this is the first time since they were born, that Steve and I have the home to ourselves. It’s fun, but at the same time, a little unbalancing. Something is missing.

I wonder how this feeling might grow in four years, if they decide to leave home for college. I’m just going to put this feeling here for now. It’s not a crisis, it’s not anything to be sad about. It just is.
