As we were driving around taking care of a few errands yesterday, I was keenly aware that this was the end of an era. Cal has been my "wingman" for several years while Jude headed off to school. We haven't always agreed on what constitutes a "fun" day together, but I have to say I have, for the most part, always enjoyed his company. So yesterday as we drove around, I relished the sound of him singing, I was fascinated by his description of the super powers he wanted, and I love imagining the car he plans to invent that drives itself (with a Wii inside).
I know it is time. I know he is ready. I celebrate this time in Cal's life. But yesterday, I cherished every second I had with Calvin. Those were some precious moments.
