Moving to college

August 16, 2012

While I was traveling this week, Caroline moved herself to college. I could feel guilty about missing this important life transition. Or I can celebrate the fact that I raised an independent woman.

Mom found this photo of me in 1980 leaving our Maryland farm for Iowa State University. (Nice hair.) I didn't know anyone in the entire state of Iowa. There were no cell phones or Facebook or email. I couldn't come home until Christmas. What an adventure. It changed my life in every way.

Caroline is living in the same dorms at Iowa State (the crappy old concrete high-rise Towers) where Bob and I lived. The adventure begins.
