My Last Day With My Son (Growing Pains)

Today is our last day at home with our son.

Yesterday was the first day of school for many kids, and as I went to work, I saw parents taking theirs for the very first time. I was reminded of each of my kids first time and overcome with emotion. (yeah I cried) With my daughter Dene' already gone and Adriann a senior at UNC, I'm sad (tears) because I know she's not coming back to stay after she graduates. Tomorrow our only son Elijah (aka The Caramel Mamba) will embark on the next level of manhood at Trinidad State. He will write the next chapter of his life. Here at home, (I'm excited) a new Journey will begin for me and my wife Amy as well. I'm sad/happy (Dene's new term) Our house will always be home to our kids, but I know it will never be the same. I love you Valdez Clan!
