Finally, Thursday before the test, he decided that he didn't like law and hasn't ever liked it and he isn't really good at it. So he withdrew from his last LSAT. At this point, he still has been accepted to law school and has a place for the fall if he wants it, but he does not need to make that decision until around March or April when he would have to start putting money towards school.
I am really struggling emotionally!! His decision is so sudden and happening so quickly that I have had no time to process. I am sad that he is leaving because I know when he leaves this time, he won't be coming back. He is moving out forever! I went through this once, when he left for college after his mission. I thought then that he wouldn't be coming back. I was worried I would struggle with his return, because though I love him dearly, he is just a little high maintenance and sometimes he causes me stress. But I love him dearly and he has been so much fun to have at the house!! The relationships he has built with his younger siblings has been priceless!! He and Shorty were close before, but now he is close with all of the littler generation at our house. He loves them all and they love him!! As you can probably guess and see, I am not the only one struggling. Drew is sad and all of the children are sad. I need to tell Spike. I don't think he knows yet.
|He is licking her nose!|
"Yes. That is what we have been talking about all weekend!."
"Why didn't anyone tell me??"
So today, I will get to help her manage her emotions. So since she didn't pick up on it, I suppose I had better make sure the rest of the littles who are here know so we can deal with the drama all at once.
|Had to include this cheesy Flynn smolder!|
I just had a brilliant thought! I need to take photos of Slim with each of the littles.....that will help each of them! If I get that done, I'll post them with this blog. If it posts without photos, just know that we had a huge storm here Wednesday and my power might be out!! :-) I have to prepare for that today too. Love you friends!
|And this is how I am managing the day.|
