Not much to say . . . but I'm sayin' it.

It's that time.

The second year of college has fewer parental requirements, of us.  We went shopping for a reload of perishables, washed the last load of clothes, watched while he packed the car and waved as he drove away.

Admittedly, it was okay to let him drive away, an option that would not have been considered Freshman year.  The quiet, emptiness of the house is still difficult to get reaccustomed to.
I did shed a few tears cleaning his room.

The sewing room is intact and the machines will be humming before the weekend is up.  We'll be camping over the holiday, like last year, and expect to enjoy it more (due to less concern for him).

I'm thrilled he wants to continue as a guest blogger for our series "Inside the Uni, Outside the Classroom".  As the summer wanned he was anxious to return and I realize we will quickly embrace the enjoyment of returning to our own schedules.

From where we're standing it looks like it's going to be a great year.

Best wishes to all those starting a new year of school, work, retirement, adventure or just regular life.  God bless us, every one.


  1. Enjoy the camping weekend. We just returned from three days at our cabin, just the two of us. Our last two trips each involved two grandchildren (each time two cousins, not siblings), so this visit was relaxing in contrast!!! Expect to see your folks sometime in the next week.

  2. Best wishes to all of you! Hope your son has a great year. Will look forward to his guest posts.

    Have a great weekend! :)
