Rekindling the Relationship Fire

The reality of becoming empty nesters began to settle in for Kathy prior Jordan’s graduation year. Our two older sons had graduated and moved out of home, and as each of them spread their wings and took flight, Kathy and I noticed a fairly significant reduction in the amount of time we were having to spend parenting and directly participating in their lives daily. As Jordan moved into his Graduation year, though, the reality of becoming empty nesters hit us both full force. Jordan had achieved getting his drivers license, and as any parent will tell you, when your child can get themselves to and from their activities on their own, it saves an amazing amount of time in a parent’s life. And we were no exception. All of a sudden we had a lot of extra time on our hands.
