Well, last weekend we took Ryan off to Penn State. Here are Mark and his father, preparing to unload the trunk while Ryan trotted off to collect his room key (and a free t-shirt).
His room is a perfectly normal college room, complete with concrete block walls (they have to keep rowdy young men from kicking holes in walls somehow, plus block is pretty fireproof). I was impressed by the amount of shelving in the room. Here they all are, making sure the bed is adequate in size, and rumpling the bed I'd just made for him. Gotta get to feel at home somehow!
Ryan's room was not carpeted, so I ordered him an area rug from the website for the big-box store with the blue sign that's in every city. Hey, shipping was free, and I sent him some granola bars as well, so he's a pretty happy boy. Me, I'm adjusting to a too-empty house.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
