Field of Gold

We made a whirlwind visit to Massachusetts this weekend to visit the last of the colleges on Hannah’s list of schools. She now has one big yes and a few backup schools. It’s been fun watching her explore the possibilities and learn more about what makes her tick. I figured I knew Hannah better than anyone, but I’ve learned even more about the young woman she’s becoming through this process.

Can you believe 18 months of college exploration and I took only one picture? This from yesterday – a view of the Berkshires across a field of gold.

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer. We take our first college-bound child to school next month. It will be such a change for us all, but so exciting for the future!
