Where she will be (and where the sun and stars will rush to meet her!)....
But that's not all.
When we got home, we took John back to UPenn to begin his sophomore year. Again, every parent we met and every student we saw was wearing a smile from ear to ear. Each person we met was happier than the next. At Penn, everyone knows they are lucky to be there and everyone shows it. How much easier it is to turn around and walk back to the car when there are happy people surrounding your son or daughter! His apartment this year might have one of the best views of any apartment in Philadelphia.
His apartment is on the very top floor !!
The view is just stunning - a spacious 4 bedroom ... heck, I'm jealous !!
And so the day wraps up on a smile. We said goodbye to Nora for six months and we sent our son back to college, halving our household's dependents in just 8 hours. Again, I'm a little dizzy. But the smiling faces we greeted along the way really did make all the difference.
