    ..is gone. Never to return. But they learn how to walk, and they learn how to talk...and you want to be with them. And they turn out to be the most delightful people you will ever meet in your life."

    My two older boys walk home from school.

    It's almost two miles away so it will take them about an hour to get home. They are 10 and 8. Today they took 2 HOURS to get home. Scared the crap out of me. I went driving around looking for them when they finally got home to my husband. I was so close to calling the police...

    My grown up son has flown the nest,
