The big M Day arrived. Yesterday.
Christopher has left the building. Yes, our youngest has moved out.
TRH (The Retired Husband) refurbished this old table he made
And here he is – at two years old, having not long before arrived home from the Philippines.
There were packing boxes strategically placed around the house. TRH recalled moving to Adelaide from Queensland many long years ago with one suitcase. When we got married we had a trailer load and our car packed to the rafters.
For two days TRH helped Christopher and his friend move furniture, clothing and other assorted belongings from home to the new rental unit he is sharing with a mate. Times have changed. There was a LOT of stuff between the two of them. The two bedroom unit is bursting at the seams.
And here he is at nearly 24. Tess is supervising the move. She is not at all sure what is happening. All she knows is that her home is changing yet again and the bed she shared many a night is no longer there!
So a new era has started for this family again. Beginnings and endings. Excitement and change. We have a HUGE house to ourselves. We’ve half done the empty nesting thing when Marc left
Now we get to finish the job. We have graduated officially to the ranks of the fully empty nested. It’s all good, just as it should be. Life will find new grooves and ways of being for all of us.
We wish Christopher well, celebrate the change with him and send him on his way to independence with all our love and blessings.
