I can't believe that school has started already! Where did summer go? I know a lot of you folks have kids going off to college, too. It must be tough for those parents to see them go, unless they're going to Carl Albert State College. They call it “The Empty Nest Syndrome.” I think it's harder on mothers than fathers. But hang in there parents, it will be all right because you have total control over the remote control to your TV and you can watch football all the time.
