The Older Kid

I know I spend very little time talking about our oldest child Travis that is 21. Mostly because he is kind of leading his own adult life now and isn't around much. He is home for dinner maybe 4 out of 7 nights, works full time and like any boy his age spends alot of time with friends away from the home. As I mentioned in yesterdays post I didn't get up and go to church. In one sense it was a blessing. Travis was home and didn't go to church either because he had planned on being gone all weekend volunteering at the race track but plans fell through. Being a boy of 21 he decided to take advantage of the extra time and sleep in. Now getting to the point of the blog, the blessing was getting to spend most of the day just me and Travis. This rarely if ever happens. We sat down and watched an episode of a tv program together, ate lunch together and just talked without any interruptions. He is still my baby and I relish getting to spend one on one time with him.

How lovely for you and Travis. I too love spending time with my boys. Now they are all considerably bigger than me but they still always give me a huge hug and kiss, just like when they were little xxx
