easy child left for his summer job the day after graduation. He is set up for a long hot summer in Orlando then home in time to pack to go off to school. My baby has left the nest. It's a good thing but there are twinges of concern that I didn't do everything or teach everything but I know this is the way life should go. It's time for a new chapter for easy child and for me. It is nice to see that easy child has some initiative to work and be independent. We are pleased at his choices even the one's we don't necessarily agree with. Maybe it will rub off on difficult child. This is going to be a teen free zone for a few months although easy child's friends have already called about meeting for lunch next week. LOL. Maybe it won't be so peaceful yet.
