Is your CS coming home for Thanksgiving? Is it just a 4 day break or longer? How long has it been since you've seen your CS?

Just 4 day for ds21; he's only a couple miles away but we usually see him for maybe an hour a week.  Apparently the semester is really bearing down on him and he's getting overwhelmed - I hope he has a few minutes to relax with us next weekend vs. spending all of it at school (they had a full week of fall break and he spent almost the entire time in the studios on campus). Mostly he needs a new gf!

She's not coming home, she has the 4 day weekend off of classes, but only Thursday and Friday off of practice, so even if it didn't cost a fortune to fly her home, it didn't make sense to only have her home for essentially 2 days. Its now been 10 weeks since she left, but only 7 1/2 weeks she's been in school. The girls and I are definitely looking forward to seeing her at christmas!

She'll get home Wednesday late afternoon after her doctor's appointment for just a 4 day break.  Last month, she started a retail job and somehow got them to not schedule her for that entire Thanksgiving weekend!  I'm looking forward to seeing her of course and glad for her to get away a bit and not think about school.  It's been an intense semester for her on several fronts.  She hasn't been home all semester--a big change from last year.  I've only been there twice besides move-in..  The first visit was Friends and Family Weekend in mid-October and the second visit I don't remember why I was there.  I've cut down on my visits too.

Dd was home for the first time since August 15th the other week for fall break. She will be home Wednesday night. She gets dropped off at school again on Sunday.

I haven't seen senior DS since he went back to school on Labor Day.  He had a longish weekend in October and went to visit friends in Boston.  This coming week all his classes were canceled, so he went to Boston to visit friends again this past weekend and will head to NYC in a couple of days.  He's going to meet freshman DD there and they're going to take the train home. 

DD has off for 4 days, I suppose.  The poor kid doesn't get to sleep in her own room until Sat night though - other people are occupying it Wed thru Fri nights.  Thanksgiving is a big family reunion for my side of the family at my house every year.

Ds is here for 4 days, but not for the long weekend. He and gf arrived Monday morning and leave on Friday morning. He hasn't been able to get home for TG for the past 2 years so we're glad to have him for these few days. We last saw him in late July when he came home for a family event.

The reason they decided to come for TG is because they won't be coming at Christmastime. Gf can't get enough days off in a row. Instead they will come for about a week in early January.It will be strange because  we have always had both kids here on Christmas even if it was just for the 25th, but this is part of them going their own way.
