And just like that, the oldest turned 21 this week.
He came home for a few days, having stayed in Big Rapids for work this summer. They don't stick around long at this age. He usually makes it to the barber on his trips home, but didn't this time, so it should be interesting to see how long his hair is by the time Thanksgiving comes around.
He was wishy washy all week about how long he'd stay, and in the end just gave us a 90 minute warning. I had a hunch, so I'd picked up a cake earlier in the day. I wasn't going to put any effort into baking if he wasn't going to commit to staying.
We saved a piece for grandma and dad. Auntie Sherry had hoped to see him, but you gotta be quick. She didn't even get cake.
I put candles on the shopping list. Our collection has gotten pretty pathetic.
Today is busy. I've been lacking motivation this week - so I need to get to it. I'm running out of days.
