A little over three years ago we visited the Boston area for Brett's senior Spring Break trip. He really wanted to see the history of the New England area and wasn't sure when he would get a chance to do so again. As we drove home yesterday from visiting him I just couldn't believe that we were back as visitors to his new life. He has adjusted well to living on his own and was able to give us highlights of life in New Hampshire that we would not have been privy to before. He was comfortable with the area he lived in and gave us a tour of the local sites, favorite restaurants and retail shops. As we parted ways in Vermont he talked of the other places that he would like to visit while living there and the beauty of the area.
I do not know where life will take Brett after November. He has talked of several different ideas of what he wants to do next. I wasn't sure how I would feel about this adventure when he took it on two months ago. After visiting him I can feel nothing but pride. He has navigated life well on his own and whether he decides to go to grad school or move to Alaska, I know that he will be just fine.
