Ah, college touring. What parent does not love the idea of a few days of quality time alone with their kid? The kid, not so much. But this guy is a good sport. Like his sister before him, he humors my crazy ass with my binders, schedules and printed out directions and sits back for the ride trying his best to soak in the experience.
Being that this is the second time around I have found the best defense for boredom is to keep them laughing and to point out the absurd whenever possible.
This crazy blue haired beauty was in the window of one of the best college town shops I have seen in a long time, Peoples Nation, State College, PA. (you can look forward to many a blog post surrounding pictures I took in here). I particularly like the choice of shirt on this maniac-quin. This image is what freshman parents’ nightmares are made from.
I will be posting about the full college touring experience over at 50-something mom blog soon. I will let you know when that is up.
For know, i could cry will be featuring the best of what makes my family laugh. Welcome to our world.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
Next stop, Maryland.
