Zing #1 now successfully installed at college. Zing #2's move-in is next Monday.

Which means next Tuesday Mrs. Z and I are empty nesters - with a little too.

Awww, I bet that's kind of bittersweet.

When older bro went to college he cried and mom and dad cried when we left him there. It still chokes me up.

When they took me to drop me off, after everything was unloaded into my room, I was like "OK see ya be careful going home thanks for everything I love you so much...where's the party?"

Might be birth order. We had a very similar experience with Zings 1 & 2.

Zing #2 took 5 AP courses in her senior year. We just got mail that she has earned a certificate of AP Scholar with distinction from collegeboard.

Aden was awarded best forward at his club footy presentation day, and Mav has been nominated for one of the big clubs for training and development over the next month.
