This has been a crazy summer! Between intense periods of work and then equally intense periods of family stuff, time has passed so strangely that it feels both like yesterday and a year ago that my oldest graduated high school. We always had our eyes on August knowing we would be taking him to college. And so it happened. This past weekend we brought him to Pittsburgh, PA where he will be studying at Carneige Mellon University. As anyone who has ever dropped a child off at college knows, it was bittersweet. Hopefully these last 18 years have prepared him for the next 4 and now letting go is the challenge we take on as we re-balance our family without him under our roof. There will certainly be a lot of adjustments for all of us and, in just 4 days, we have something else major happening. But I'll save that for the next blog post. For now, goodbye and best wishes to Alex!
