Late tonight we put Thomas on a bus which will drive him 12 hours to a town in northern Alberta, where he starts bible college tomorrow.
Some of the kids were so ready to go. Others were less ready. Thomas could have stayed here for a long time. Not in a big rush to take on the things of adulthood. Easygoing, friendly, not hurried.
So again it's bittersweet. And I miss him and the other two already.
Now it's me and Lauralea and Micah.
Just we three.
