Not that he's going far, but he will be living away from home. T begins his freshman year at The Webb Institute tomorrow. I guess we'll kind of miss him, but his school is only a few miles away--closer than L's, and she is close enough to commute.
So today we are deciding what he will take with him. Since the students live in an old Gold Coast mansion--The Braes--in large rooms (unlike the tiny rooms at L's school), he can bring more than she did. So, his recliner? Probably. Computer, books, his cello...sure. Somehow, he just does not seem to have as much "stuff" as she did. Laundry, laundry, laundry. That's pretty much it. Oh, and some safety items, including protective eye-wear, steel-toed boots, and a hardhat. Odd equipment for most college freshmen, but Webb is a different sort of college.
Somehow, it seems easier with the second one. I'll post photos, and let you know how it goes tomorrow. Maybe it'll be awful, but I doubt it. He has been ready to go for a while.
Update: He just packed his baseball mitt...I might cry.
