Today is Drummer boy's 18th birthday. He is moving out to his appartment in town next week and then he starts university in september. He is ecstatic and overflowing with life and newness and energy, and all that youthful sort of stuff that I vaguely remember.
He has crossed the bridge...and gone.
And we are...still here. It is a strange feeling.
I expect I will get used to it. Eventually.
