That comment, said with a look of tremendous glee, was said a few hours after the long awaited news from BYU. Seth got his acceptance letter today from BYU. He'll start there the same day Ian comes home from his mission (I think). I'm happy for Seth. It's tough to get into BYU and that was his only choice. He is so happy.
Somewhere in the last few hours though, all our lives changed a bit. Seth realizes he's soon flying away from the nest and he likes that idea...I am coming to terms however with the understanding that his joyful news means that my nest will really be empty when he goes.
