Boo at college

 A month, and more, after dropping Boo off at her college, we're thrilled with how things are working out for her.  She's swiftly made close friends, most importantly with her roommate (we were so worried ahead of time how that would work out, and it's been absolutely fantastic!)

Now we have to get Skibo to the same stage a year from now!  An adventure:-)

Yours, proudly parentally,

Three years have gone by

 My.  Three years since I last posted here --- I knew it was a while, but didn't think that it was quite that long. 

Time has passed, that is for sure.  Boo has finished their high school work and will graduate next week, planning to move on to college in September --- emphasis on "move": heading to Atlantic Canada to study Classics.

Skibo is also done with his schoolwork for the year, and in this,  his senior year, plans to apply to colleges  in Ontario.  He's developed a passion for history and politics, choosing to read extensively about both the past (especially the middle of the last century) and the present (currently on his reading list: The Deficit Myth and Capital in the 21st Century). 

I'm thrilled with who they are, how they are growing into adults before our eyes.

Yours, with joy,
