Ds#1 is in his 3rd year in college. He has done some travelling overseas, so will be on the five year plan.
We'll see him for two weeks after finals, but then he goes back to the school. He took a job there this summer.
We miss him a lot, but it's really wonderful to go visit and see him living in an apartment, taking care of himself and managing just fine.
Skype is great! We don't use it as much now, but when he was doing a semester abroad, it was a really nice way to stay in touch.
Yes, the time does go by so quickly.
Ds#2 is close to finishing up his freshman year in highschool and I am trying to keep in mind that these next few years with him will fly by, too.
