Phone Home, My Little College Girl
I cannot find the words to describe how I feel about dropping off Laura at Dickinson College. The school had an amazing system using student volunteers to get all the items from your car to the dorm rooms, which helped a great deal. I did not carry one box up to her adorable little dorm room. Then the President of the school spoke and I remembered the reason why we selected this college in the first place and was inspired by his words and advise he and his staff were giving the parents. Finally, the goodbye reception was nice and the weather could not have been better. Still, we had to say our goodbyes and give one last hug before we hopped in our car and headed back to stay a few days at my sister's home. Of course, I am putting off returning to my empty nest home in Scottsdale for as long as I can.
I think the calls home are going to be sporadic at first so I am preparing myself and hoping that in the future she will enjoy her phone calls home as much as we will enjoy receiving them.
