Back to Clemson

Well, we moved our youngest back to Clemson today. He was not supposed to move in until Sunday but his roommate is a new transfer and was able to move in today, so Cody went ahead and moved in also. Which was fine to us, because I really wasn't looking forward to moving on Sunday. I won't go into all the details of the day, but I will say....Cody was ready for us to leave as soon as he unpacked. And...that's okay, I have to remember that this was different from last year. Last year he was a freshman and I think he was comfortable having his parents there, helping. But...he's a sophomore now and really don't need us as much. So.... of course, I tried to stay as long as possible. While he and his roommate unloaded, I started putting things away in his kitchen. Every trip up the stairs,with his arms full, he would look at me and say, "Mom, don't worry about that, I'll do it". I finally got the hint and kissed him good-bye and that's when I realize that my "freshman" feelings haven't changed. My Baby's moved out!

"It's ok Mom, I'll do it"

I didn't mean it like THAT!!

I didn't want to you have to do all that stuff or have to carry anything up and down stairs, I knew ya'll had been waiting on me for hours in a hot car so I figured you were ready to go out and have your anniversary date!!

I can't wait until the old Gaffer gets invited over to watch a game or movie on the 62" HD Big Screen!
