Yesterday we said goodbye to our oldest son, Sam, as he stayed behind in his new digs at Belhaven College, while we hit the road to return to Houston, and then back to Turkey. I wrote a little about Sam last year when he graduated from high school (link); he spent the last year working in Turkey as a teacher's assistant in a Turkish kindergarten. He's a great person and he'll do great at school, getting to know (and debate with) new friends, teachers, a local church that is ready to adopt him. He'll definitely learn a lot. He'll also take some classes.
This week it's our younger son Andy's turn to take up residence in Houston. Sigh.
