Move in Day!

Here's something to think about as our children age...

This Wednesday was move into the dorms day for the nearly 7,000 freshman here at IU.  The town has been crazy-busy!  So many parents and kids and cars and stuff!  

Temporary signs give direction as do plenty of IU staff pulled in from different departments.  
Some of the parents are heading home, leaving their children to start the sink or swim process.  I had to go to Target yesterday to pick up a few of the necessities of my life.  I am patient and don't mind mingling with the college crazy crowd.  While in the check out lane I noticed that the parent free boy in front of me had his necessities in his basket.  It was fun to watch him place them on the conveyor belt...Broom, Trash Bags, Dirt Devil (dust buster), Desk Lamp, and Condoms.  

Good for him to be thinking about being responsible!  :)
