Home From College (Briefly!)

I woke up Wednesday AM to signs that my soon-to-be 21 year old son, Alex, was in the house.

Having just finished his second year at University of Oregon, he's off to backpack in Europe for three months.

This means we're cramming a summer's worth of visiting, home cooking, friends stopping by, Father's Day and hugs from Mom into 5 short days.

Ryan came by to say hi ....

I love having their energy in the house!

And what, you may ask, was the clue that tipped me off to Alex's middle-of-the-night arrival?

LOL, oh my goodness. You gave me a good laugh!! Yep, sure sign! Have a wonderful visit, and soak up every second you can with him!

Marita, how funny. Enjoy him while he's home but geez, remind him to put the seat and top down!

Marita ~
I'm sure it's great to have your son home ~ if for only 5 days. May he have a WONDERFUL summer in Europe ;-)
My almost 30 year old son who lives in Las Vegas showed up on my doorstep 2 weeks ago ~ what a wonderful surprise that was! I miss him dearly, but he is living his life and not mine ~ everything a mom could wish for.
