OK, I got the camera back from my lovely daughter, and am now able to post some pix from your sojourn northwards to visit Dylan:
First up, mom & dad
Then the princess
Mom and the man of the hour
OK, now we’re really wearing out our welcome:
And we canâ€™t leave without the requisite football game. Go Orange!
Oh yeah, and we got ID for the whole family!
Yeah, yeah, after years of listening to music it is a tough thing to say, but you know, now that my son, Dylan, is attending Syracuse University, we sort of have to go that way these days.
This past weekend, we all went up to visit Dylan for Family weekend, and attended a Syracuse football game (yes, they even won 28-14). Anyway, it was a fun weekend.
We got to see the campus and purchase a metric tonne of Syracuse Spirit-wear (most of which went to Kayla, our parents, and other relatives). Iâ€™ll be posting some pics as soon as I can gain access to the camera and download them. In the mean time, here are a couple of buttons that Shelly & I wore all weekend long to identify us as Syracuse parents (and to embarrass Dylan).
I havenâ€™t posted in a couple of days, and Iâ€™m feeling a bit off right now (Yeah, yeah, I know that some of you
Walt are going to say that I have always been â€œa little bit offâ€), but thatâ€™s because over the weekend I drove up to Syracuse to drop my eldest off to attend college there.
Yeah, yeah, I know that I should be happy that he got into such a prestigious school and all, but Iâ€™m really having a difficult time adjusting to this new phase in all of our lives (and, of course, the fact the he will probably never live with me again).
Not entirely sure that I was ready for this. Truth to tell, Iâ€™m taking this harder than either my wife or our daughter (who spent the weekend cleaning up her own room, and measuring his to see if her stuff would fit in it). Sweet kid, eh?
Anyway. Iâ€™m feeling a little melancholy and, well, hopefully Iâ€™ll feel better as the week wears on.
Off to Syracuse to take the boy to college!
