I am looking forward to football games, parent weekends, visits home, cooking for her and homesick roommates and Facetime chats…but not so much the dreaded tuition bill! I knew she made the right college choice when, during our Italian adventure, I saw this beautiful Murano Glass Blue Hen, the mascot of the University of Delaware, in a Venice shop. What’s it called… Kismet? Serendipity?
So, the college paraphernalia gathering began earlier in the summer and the packing marathon began last Wednesday. We all know how much I depend on “To Do” lists and both Target and BED BATH & BEYOND offered great check lists to make sure the college bound (and their parents) did not forget anything. As you can see from the pile in the photo below, I think we are good! Older daughter arrived with reinforcements, and by reinforcements I mean the Subaru Forrester (best car ever) because, bless her heart, we will not fit all
It’s just me, this old house, and a dog named Stella.
Unless you count the ants.
Now I can put the new silverware away. Beautiful hammered pattern from Oneida.
Stuff (notice Stella with a "Hey, what's going on here!" look)
Daughter and stuff in dorm room
Typical dorm hall on move-in day.
