I took Peter and his friend Michael to look at colleges last Sunday. We first went to California State University, Fullerton, since that was one of Peter's favorites from the descriptions he was reading about the Majors he's interested in and with continuing Cross Country and Track. We walked around for at least two hours with our self tour guide booklet, and we also got lost a little bit. So impressive and inspiring...Peter was so impressed with the nature park and imagined practicing his cross country running there. Oh, and they loved the giant ice cream statue...
Next stop was California State University, Long Beach, where I graduated 30 years ago. I realized that I hadn't been back since, and I was amazed at the changes and the additional facilities, like the Pyramid for the sports, and, of course, the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center. Most of upper campus looked the same to me and brought back many happy memories wandering the halls and remembering what it was like to study and make friends there. Another two hours of walking. We sure got our exercise that day!!
Peter has a big decision to make. And we need to figure out a way to pay for it. It's nice to dream. Even nicer to make those dreams come true.
I'm an almost 56 year old woman. I'm mother of three almost grown up kids, Will, 24, Kara, 22, and Peter, 20. I've been married for over 24 years to Frank.
I love to do creative things like needlework, cross stitch in particular, knitting and crocheting.
