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.

Josh’s first day of School his Junior year

By on August 19th, 2014

Here is Josh on his first day of school. We are hoping for a great year. I told him this is the most important year for colleges. If he does good this year maybe he can slide a little next year. You have to apply to college by November 1st your senior and once you are in, you can relax a little. He is Also hoping for a smart phone. He had to get all A’s and B’s first. Good luck.


Red Robin for lunch

By on August 18th, 2014

Peggy made the boys appointments at the dentist before they went back to school. Peggy wanted to take the boys shopping so she had us grab a bite while we waited for her lunch hour. We went to Red Robin for lunch. We got the cheese sticks and jalepeno bites for apps. Anthony and I got the Royal Red Robin (with egg on top) and Josh got the Colossus burger. It was pretty good. We went shopping after and got some more school stuff. Anthony leaves for MD on the 27th and Josh starts tomorrow.
