Year Three


You would think this business of taking your kid to college would get easier by year three, but nay, it does not....
I woke up with a lump in my throat at 4am, the dog pissed in the hall at 5am just to distract us, Gerry was not pleased with him, so the whole house was good and awake by 7am. We just all got the hell up and went down to Franklin St. for breakfast, why not! All packed up the day before, so we got to the school by noon and got her all settled in to her new house. Whew!

Here is a building in the film village. The movie poster third from the left is from the screenplay Wesley wrote last year. These are posters of the fourth year films that were produced in 2012. The first year we came to UNCSA for a tour to check out the school I said to Wesley, just think, you could have a poster up there in your fourth year. Little did I know she would have one up by second year,  She wrote the screenplay for a fourth year producer and the faculty picked it.




There is her name all up on the big wall, wooohooo! So proud, I just had to ride by today and look at it


Obligatory going to school photos with dad and mom, sorry Wes, we have to do this! I have a very cute husband, we make a good team :-)


Mom and daughter, looking all sassy with our new haircuts, haha! Hair is eight inches shorter for me and I'm eight pounds lighter. First time I have fit into these jeans in over a year!!! Big WHOOP! I seem to be shrinking in height too... hmmmm......

So, it's over. We have her moved back to school, there is a big old empty hole in the space she occupied all summer. But she is in the coolest house, with some great roommates that were so happy to see her. She is loved, she is all cozied in her room, all is well with the world today.
The sky cried all day, so I didn't have to.......

Teach your children what you believe in.
Make a world that we can live in.

3 years- it does not seem possible and, yet, we know it goes fast.
Wesley really looks so grown up and ready.
Ready for life.

You 2 are pretty sassy looking!
