Well she did it. Lo chose an education over living under our roof.
Kids these days.
I did not get any pictures of her dorm because the lil’ camera I brought with me was having issues and my droid is mad at me for dropping it 57 times. It now refuses to take photos. Whatev. Sissy phone.
Here is her loot prior to leaving the house, plus a suitcase of clothes suitable for a year long visit to Europe.
Did I tell you that little sister asked big sister a few weeks ago: Are you taking ALL your stuff to school with you?
Lo: NO, why?
Linds: Well, I really wanted to have your closet.
Silly girl, that closet has my name all over it. 🙂
Overheard in the dorm:
Lo to one of her roommates while standing in their fully equipped kitchen. (very sweet young lady, also a softball player)
Lo: I really don’t know what I will be cooking in here. I don’t know how to make anything…. (she is exaggerating, I swear!)
Roommate: Me neither.
Lo with a light bulb over her head: Oh, wait, I can bake cookies!
Roommate: Oh, yes, I CAN bake too.
Together, no longer worried: Oh, yeah, we’ll be fine.
Cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Freshman 15 anyone?
A former high school-mate is staying on the floor above Lo.
He comes in says hello and asks the girls present:
Can someone help me put the sheet thingys on my bed? I have never done that before.
I quietly laughed. Surely his Mom would be appalled.
I was reluctant about leaving her, but then I heard this voice in my head saying: SINK or SWIM.
She became a strong swimmer at five.
