Teacher, Leave Them Kids Alone

For years now, Jeff and I have been discussing the idea that he'd return to college and get his bachelor's degree. His company offers tuition reimbursement and it just seemed crazy not to take advantage of it. But the timing hasn't been right - until now. In researching places for Kaity to take her dual enrollment classes, I decided to see if we could get a two-for-one deal.

Not really, of course.

Basically, I was so impressed with the friendly, super-helpful staff at Piedmont College that I started looking into it for Jeff, too. One thing led to another and now I'm married to a college student! And I'm the mother of a college student. And I'm totally jealous because *I* want to go back to college, too! Ah, well. I'll be 62 all too soon and I can take all the free classes I want then.

I took this picture a couple of weeks ago when we went to the college to get Jeff registered for classes.
 This is what it looks like when your child is starting college:

But this is what it feels like:

We celebrated Kaity's class registration today with lunch at Ted's Most Best. Good pizza, y'all!
*Disclaimer: Please ignore the "weird look" on Kaity's face. I did not warn her that I was taking a picture. She was (justifiably) irritated with her little brother at the time.
Later in the afternoon, Jeff met us on campus to get their books and to bring Selah to me, who had been at soccer camp during the morning. The building on the left there is the campus bookstore.

Father and daughter, starting college together! 

I'm extremely proud of them both!
