Deer in the yard again

By on August 29th, 2014

People still don’t believe we get deer in our yard all the time. There were a couple small ones this evening. We watched them through the door for a long time.

Dropping Anthony off at College

By on August 27th, 2014

We dropped Anthony off at the University of Maryland today to start his college career. It was a little sad. I mean, not for him. For him, it’s great. But, for us old folks dropping him off…yep…a little sad.

It was actually relatively organized. We unloaded on the curb and I parked while Josh, Peggy and the Hubbards carried his stuff up. The Hubbards had the earlier drop off period so they were finished.

After he set up his room, his roommate Jeffrey Chen arrived. His brother brought him up. He only had a couple bags.

We met Christine and her roommate for lunch in the dining hall. Anthony ate with them and some other kids and Peggy and I ate with Josh. After we picked up a couple things for him from the book store before leaving.

I think he’s going to be fine. It might take us a bit of time though.
