Since December 26th, E and T, our adult daughters, have been living with us. We weren’t sure how long this would last, but now we know.
Not much longer.
T has been offered a job beginning February first as part of a grasslands research study by the Department of Environmental Conservation – in Missouri.
T has a particular interest in grasses and prairies. She can rhapsodize about sedges. We are very happy for her as this will be great experience for her post-master’s degree resume and allow her to work in a prairie ecosystem, which has long been a dream of hers.
We are shifting into high gear to prepare for her 1,000+ mile move, which needs to happen quite quickly.
Thinking about the move is bittersweet, though. We will miss having T here with us, especially her hugs. Because she will be in a rural area, her internet access will be limited, so there is unlikely to be much videochatting.
We will try to enjoy these last few days with the four of us together, even though they will be busy. And we will have memories of these rare few weeks together to last for years to come.
