This Wednesday found me taking a personal day off from work, so as to attend an orientation presentation at a local, state university which has a program of interest for one of my DS's. We anticipated applying to this program, for admitance in the Fall of 2016. The application process, however, begins one year ahead, so we would be applying come Fall 2015. Fortunately, I was able to get visitor parking, so no parking garage fees were incurred. Since this was a morning session, we returned home, where I promptly made a bag lunch for DS, who wanted to spend the rest of the day at school. Can't complain about a kid who wants to be in school!
