This morning was bittersweet. My 8th grade son boarded a plane early this morning with most of his fellow 8th graders. They were on their spring break trip to Washington DC. We had to be at the airport at 4:30 this morning which meant getting up at 3:15 and leaving the house by 3:45. Today also happened to be the “Spring Forward” time change for Daylight Saving Time so in actuality it was like getting up at 2:15. We were both a little groggy!

Then and there if you didn’t get along with someone or you had a disagreement you tended to slug it out, get over it, and then be friends.

If you have read many of my postings then you probably already know that I have been blessed with 3 of the best kids you will ever meet. My 17-year -old daughter Megan is as close to perfect as a teenager can get. Her sweet disposition is matched only by her intellect, love, and faith.

As I smiled and said, “Great!” to my little girl, the voice inside my head responded with a resounding, “Ugh!!”
