Sadness and Joy When Grandkids Return to College

Last week my twin grandchildren returned to college. They are both sophomores. One is attending a huge state university and the other is attending a small private college. Both are happy with their college choices and I'm happy for them. Having the twins home for college was so much fun I didn't want it to end. "I'll probably cry when you go back to school," I admitted to my granddaughter. She asked me not to do that and I didn't. My husband and I sent them off with smiles, good wishes, and the house is quiet again. Too quiet.
