The last few days in Australia were very very busy – and the kidlets had reached their Mb download limit so there was no internet!!
It gets incredibly difficult to say goodbye .. I am not sure anymore if it is harder to say goodbye to my parents, because I might not see them again, or to my children…..
I am so proud of my children and what they have achieved. In 2000, after 5 years with me as the sole parent, they started living with my ex-husband while I moved to the United States to remarry.
After a couple of years they were basically without parental supervision. Last year they moved into a rental home together and have continued to impress people with their maturity and responsibility. They are three fabulous young adults who deserve much credit themselves for the positive direction they are taking through life:
The Locksmith – the eldest – with his girlfriend. He is responsible for keeping order in the house.
The Economist – responsible for keeping the finances of the house (of course):
The House-sister, aka The Princess – responsible for the housework (though this is the pose I saw most in my visit!):
Got back to DC around midnight last night, into bed after 1am and have to go to work tomorrow – makes for a cranky "girl" today!!
