A monumental weekend

Well, this is a monumental weekend.  Grand-daughter Samantha is officially off to college in Monterey.  Poppy Mike accompanied her & our daughter and son-in-law to Monterey to help get her moved into the dorms.  Mike says it was very easy to tell which family had boys & which had girls.  The boys showed up with a couple of bags or small suitcases and the girls all showed up in Beacon Moving Vans with dozens of strong helpers to fetch & carry!  So, after 2 days of arranging, re-arranging & technical difficulties the room is done.  I haven't seen it yet but I know it is cute.  I'll post pictures as soon as I can.  What an exciting time this is for the kids & scary too.  Scary to be on your own & fully responsible for self & scary to think they are on thier own & fully self responsible.  Good Luck Sam!!! We love you.
