It's Not All Deadlines and Work

Here's more of what I've been up to all month:

College Visit
We went up to Burlington, VT, at the beginning of this month. MAN that's a long drive. It was much easier coming back, when we broke it over two days. Also more beautiful because we took the ferry across Lake Champlain.

Champlain College is tops on her list at the moment, but we have two more visits planned and then probably two more to do in the fall.

We got lucky and had gorgeous weather for the tours and stuff. The college and town are beautiful, and the program there very unique.

City Islanders Soccer
The season really got front-loaded with home games, so we were going a couple of times a week, with the Open Cup games, regular games, and friendly match against our MLS affiliate, the Philadelphia Union. Our backups beat their backups 3-1, which was great, but it also makes me nervous because they were a little unhappy about that and we have to play them in the Open Cup Quarterfinals on Tuesday. If we win and Dayton upsets the team they're playing, we get to host the semifinal. That would be AWESOME! This is the furthest the team has ever gotten in the Cup, and we always lose to an MLS team at this point, so it should be a good game. Even if the Union play hard because we pissed them off.

For regular season games now, they've got a heavier away schedule, and the few home games hit while we're out of town. So I'm glad we got to do as much as we did.

The college visiting thing is fun. I enjoyed it with all my children. My daughter finally settled on Boston University. We're going for orientation this week. Can't believe one of your babies is old enough to think about college.

BU is awesome! Is she your last one? I feel like you've had a kid in college the entire time I've known you, though of course it's not true. :)

She's the last one and I feel like I've had a kid in college forever too and most of the time, two of them. My youngest son is a junior at PSU so we're starting to see the light at the end of the finacial tunnel.
