8 May, Tuesday - jan-hendrik moving away


My eldest, Jan-Hendrik, moved today to Burgersfort - (360km / 224 miles) from Pretoria. He got a good work offer and his girlfriend also got a job at a lodge in the town. This move happened within 4 days! We are going to miss him!!
I'm sure you are very proud of him! I wish him well with his move and new job!

Yes you will miss them Paula, but how exciting for them. Two of my 3 kids, live really far away from me, but they are so happy. I am happy for them too.

I can sure understand missing him. I dread the day my son moves out but know he wants to in time. So glad your son has someone to be with where he will live. Also great that he got a good job and she got a job as they are so hard to find today. Best of luck to the two of them. Love this photo, Paula.

It's a part of becoming a man. Our boy is 16 and he's decided to leave us here in the UK to return to SA. My wife is understandably upset. But it is his choice and, for good or bad, we learn from our decisions. The love doesn't leave with them.

It is difficult letting our babies fly from the nest. He'll do great I'm sure.
