And there comes a time when I have to say goodbye to my little boy and leave him at college. This is one of those milestones in a child’s life…and for the parent, in this instance Me, I’m happy to say that I’m on the “other side”, of this milestone that has been looming over my head all summer. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s been looming over me for 18 years. 🙂
What does a boy pack for college? Aside from his mother’s heart? Lot’s of Vineyard Vines clothes! He’s a very savvy packer. 🙂

And we’re off!
Just hanging loose in his dorm. Posing for his mom. 😉
Those are not both Patrick’s closets. Though they certainly could be. Both Patrick and his roommate John, have the exact same taste in clothes. A matching pair of salmon-colored trousers will attest to that.
Patrick and his roommate John. Day one of the next four years of his life at Miami University!
Song of the Day: Forever Young, by Rod Stewart
And when you finally fly away
I’ll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell
But whatever road you choose
I’m right behind you, win or lose
Forever Young, Forever Young
Patrick, I love you. Best of luck to you honey. I miss you so much, it hurts. But I am so excited for this next chapter of your life.
