McDonnell, first lady take on new title: empty nesters
The governor's mansion just got a little emptier.
Gov. Bob McDonnell and first lady Maureen McDonnell, are spending the weekend in Charlottesville to drop off their youngest children, Sean and Bobby, who will be students at the University of Virginia this fall. The boys, who are fraternal twins, plan to room together.
"It's part of the cycle of life,'' the governor told reporters last night. "We've been raising kids for the last 29-and-a-half years and this is the first time we won't have kids living in the house. It'll be different but it'll be a little more quality time for my wife and I."
Just last weekend, the McDonnells were in Blacksburg dropping off daughter Rachel, who graduated from James Madison University, and will attend Virginia Tech as a graduate student. Their other two daughters are grown.
"That was a little tough,'' the governor said. "We didn't do too well leaving Virginia Tech."
