Today is packing day and tomorrow is unpacking day - taking our baby off to college. Of course, she (center) is going to one of the two greatest schools in the nation: Virginia Tech (the other one being Appalachian State where our son (left) is attending). Our older daughter (right) also attended Virginia Tech, graduated, got a job and her own insurance, so we are hopeful that her siblings will follow her lead. My husband and I have been looking forward to the empty nest - except for the part about everyone being gone. Sounds odd except to those of you who have done it. A clean house...lots more freedom...and lots more quiet...and lots more empty. I am going hiking all next week.
