First Day of School | 2012

Photo on the left was taken this morning. Photo on the right was taken on August 31st--move in day for the high school senior--2300 miles away in Northern Lower Michigan.

Here they were last year on the first day of school.

And the year before that.

In 2009.  And in 2008.

View a slideshow where I chronicle the first day of school since 2002.

Here they were in 2002...where did the time go?

It sure is going to be a lot quieter around here with T being away. I'm so excited for him, though--busy senior year with college applications underway! New experiences...how will the Cali kid fare in the East Coast winter?

Here's a glimpse of the beautiful Interlochen Center for the Arts campus...

Move-in day...syncing their calendars...

Dorm living...

Getting a tour of the library...

Beautiful West Arm Grand Traverse Bay...

Missing the big kid already...

Can't wait to be reunited next month for Parents' Weekend!
