My younger son Ives waltzed through the door today, having completed his Army National Guard training at Fort Benning, Ga., yesterday. His sister, Olivia, and her husband, Rich, picked Ives up in Hartford, Conn., about 40 miles south of here. I was under the impression, based on what my older son, Angus, told me, that Ives son was headed to Alabama for some R&R with some army buddies. Suddenly, the kids who are no longer kids are all back under what seems like an incredibly shrinking roof.
Talking with, who else, mom, who is on her way back from Ga.
No matter what the situation or age, the big sister rules.
