Winging to Wisco

Headed out to Wisconsin today with the kids. This state is really serious about their badgers, enough so that they feature one on the wing of the Midwest Airlines plane.

For those who live under a rock do not follow college sports, the badger is the UW mascot. We are here for my son’s orientation and my daughters sheer pleasure to be back after 5 months away.

The realization that both my kids will be living in the same college town has hit hard today. They could not be happier and for me, knowing they will be here together makes letting go the second time a lot easier.

Ok, I lied. I am insanely jealous that they will be here together, but in a good way. As I told Jana today, I may be losing him, but she is getting him back.

Go Badgers!

    Good for your kids.
    BUT
    On behalf of my husband, who bleeds scarlet and grey and does not read blogs, I must say, “Go Bucks!”

    I hope they enjoy being at the same school as much as I did attending college with my brother. Sharing some of the best years of my life with him was such a gift! Parents weekend will be a no brainer with no scheduling conflicts! 🙂
