Red, White, & Blue Monday
Last night we said goodbye to our newly-graduated son as he headed back to "real life" in Chicago, which involves finding a job, an internship, and/or an apartment in the next couple of months. The train was late, and when it finally came, it wasn't actually his train! It was the earlier delayed train! So we took him home for cookies and milk and took him back for the real farewell. What a beautiful, warm, breezy night!
The train delay was good in that husband could get home from club volleyball tournament--his girls won the whole thing!--in time to say goodbye.
