Tomorrow my daughter’s turn 18.  I’m not ready for them to be this old.  One has been accepted to the same college that my son is going to and the other daughter hasn’t applied to any colleges yet but soon will.  Tonight my daughters went to church and left my wife and I at the house alone. We’ve been without our kids on several occasions but tonight it felt a little different.  I guess just knowing that in just a few months from now there is a very good chance that we will be experiencing the empty nest syndrome.  My wife and talked about this for a minute but my wife quickly changed the subject.  I could tell in her voice that she didn’t want to talk about it and soon it was clear to me because she had a tear run down her cheek.  It’s going to be much harder on her than on me I think.
