Our family unit is about to undergo a significant change. Jess’ 13 year old daughter will be going with her father to Ontario for a year. Her almost 17 year old son will be moving in with us full time. Tonight we had a little celebration in honour of Rachel. Tomorrow morning she will get in the car… and then the countdown begins until when we see her next. Ideally it will be during a long weekend or student break, but we won’t really know until she and her other family get settled in.
One thing’s for certain… her Mama is going to have a hard time with this.
