tomorrow our prodigal eleven-year-old returns from his weeklong class trip. We are so looking forward to having him back and yet hubby and I have definitely been noticing a certain pleasure in the rhythm of life at home with zero kids (Max is off in his own apartment, doing his own things - we've seen him a few times this week but by no means every day, and never for all that long at a time).

It's also different, quite different, from going on a vacation without the kids. 

Anyway, we're looking forward to having Felix back but we did take a moment today to meditate on the ways in which the rhythms and relationships are really noticeably different when it is just us.
