His older sister, his only sibling, just left for college. He is home alone with his parents and his dog. He plays drums in a drumline and school band, and is an excellent student. I just don't know what activities to do with him --or if there are any. We seem to live parallel lives. He chats with me occasionally, and will sometimes play scrabble with me, but, other than that, I don't know how to find something interesting to do in order to spend some fun time with him. He doesn't like movies. Maybe the obvious answer is -- he has his own interests now and I should move on with my own? This last year I became so sad about the end of my childrens' childhood.
