Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity-Jig

Our eleven day, three state, nine college tour is over, and my daughter and I are back home with Mom and little sister. We had a terrific week and a half: few disagreements, nothing that could be considered a fight, and more laughs and giggles and candid conversations than I can count. We enjoyed a few wonderful meals, took in the sights and sounds and tastes of Washington, D.C. More to the point, she found four schools that she loved -- she intends to apply to all four. She was also able to cross several other schools off her list, which is valuable, too.

I'm glad to see her finding schools that excite her and have her thinking about her future. I'm deeply proud of the maturity she has shown throughout this process. And I'm grateful beyond words for the time we've just had together. I will treasure the memory of this trip for the rest of my days.

That's lovely. I hope to have the same in a few years.

Thanks, Susan. I hope you have the opportunity to do a college tour with your child. It really is an incredible experience. I remember the trip I took with my Dad, and I know that my daughter will remember this trip the same way.

Thanks. Yes, I love this age, too. It's payoff, in a way, for all the hard work we do in the 16 years leading up to this point.
