. . . without a word of warning, his best friend just moved from CT to Texas.
So very strange.
I am homeschooling my 13 year old son and we have only been at it for about a year now. He didn't have that many friends when he was at school and then he met his friend Chris at an after-school activity. They hit it off and even though Chris went to a different school they managed to see each other on weekends and holidays and keep in touch over the phone and by email. They have been friends for more than 3 years now. I liked his parents very much -- we didn't socialize but we always had something to talk about when we were dropping off or picking up the boys.
The last few times that my son had invited Chris over for a playdate or sleepover, his mom said no without any explanation. They saw each other a couple of weeks ago and hadn't seen each other since but had talked several times on the phone. Every once and a while in their friendship, a few weeks would go by til they talked or saw each other so I don't think that my son or I really took notice that there had been little to no communication.
This morning the phone rang and I didn't recognize the number so I didn't pick up. We listened to the message and it was Chris, calling to tell my son that he had moved and was living in Texas.
Is that weird or what? You would figure that Chris' mom would have said something, knowing how much the boys meant to each other.
I'm heartbroken for my son and don't even know what to say. He, of course, in his 13 year old way, isn't saying much.
I'm completely flabbergasted and needed to unload.
Thanks for listening.
