Van at 4 p.m.

Things read at 4 p.m.
From Terese, Nat’s teacher:
‘Funniest thing happened in gym today. Alan played a trick on us. Alan had the entire class start off with running, once everyone lined up he said “ready, set……..” but never said go and everyone went off. He made everyone come back and start off again. He does this to us about once a week. Alan, being Alan did it again “ready, set….” but never said go…. well Nat whispered Go loud enough for the student next to him to hear it and it sent the other student running across the gym, Nat stayed on the black line waiting, cracking up (so appropriate). I was dying laughing because Nat totally pranked another student.’

Things heard at 4 p.m.

Deep honk of horn

“Gray bag, gray bag” (gray overnight bag forgotten at school)

“Hou-ew-se” (house)

“Mah-ee” (Mommy)

“Ny-yat” (Nat)

“O-Byee-en” (Ben)

Things felt at 4 p.m.

Hot sandpapery cheek

Big muscular frame slumped into my arms

Excited heartbeat

Things smelled at 4 p.m.

Pumpkin ice cream

Unfamiliar aftershave

Wondering have you and your husband decided to talk to Nat about coming back home? Got to admit I am rooting for that!

Ah, he’s home! Awesome, enjoy! He’s such a handsome boy, I am just waiting for the day when I have to look up to Casey.

Love the “ready, set…” Sounds like he is coming into his own.

That is what young adults do when they get out on their own and spread their wings.

You look soooooo happy! Have a great weekend…this feels to me like a great “home” to come home to for Nat. Lots of people have two homes you know.
