I find myself more focused on the others that are leaving and trying to ignore the obvious leaver within my own house. Kid one is preparing to move to the US this summer to begin her adventure in college. She was accepted to enough colleges to make a decision necessary but clearly wanted the out of state but close enough to home and grandparents option.
Graduations begin this week. Our local high school back in the US celebrated graduation yesterday. Fifth graders cross their bridge here at AES today while eighth graders will graduate on Monday night and high school graduation for AES is Tuesday night.
My mom and "Auntie" are here for the graduation and to visit India so there are some distractions for me to focus on. We have been seeing sights and participating in the year end activities together. I am enjoying having my mom here to hold my hand as these good byes get harder to ignore and say.
Graduation will have a live streaming feed for those who want to be here but can't. Link to the below sight at 7:00pm New Delhi time Tuesday May 29.
Love to all of you we miss and those we will be missing soon.
