He is still missing them but I let him have the shirts/shorts they sleep in during the day. He still looks for them the first couple of hours after they leave. But he is no longer as depressed as he was. 3 day weekend so he will have all their attention again for the next few days. And doesn't comprehend homework either...so my Freshman gets to use the dog chewed my homework excuse finally He was sitting on the couch with Boomer laid beside him while doing his homework. We to the restroom came back to a chewed mess Boys will be boys!
