Even though they haven’t been home, it does feel like…
“The Summer of The Twins.”
I admit we have been a little preoccupied with them and this week is really no exception. Please bear with me for another week or two. Then I’m pretty sure, we’ll get back into a *normal* family routine that isn’t surrounded by daily trips to the post office, jumping when our phones ring and always blogging about them!
This week we’re getting the darling twins packed and ready for college.
The cadet program really simplifies the packing process.
One trunk filled with white flat sheets, white towels and a mandatory knee-length or longer bathrobe that hasn’t arrived yet.
Very specific list including 24 wire hangers, black bookbags (no colors), combination lock have made preparation pretty simple!
Optional items include an alarm clock, a radio and a fan. Woo-hoo.
Not the standard dorm room decor. No color scheme, no girly stuff – which isn’t really a problem for our non-girly girls.
Side note: If you want to see the stark contrast of a Corp. of Cadets dorm room compared to the average college dorm room that you or your college kids have, click here.
A small box contains all their personal items and vital electronic devices – wallet, car keys, cell phone, ipod, camera, chargers, etc.
Sure makes packing easy.
Sure makes them leaving home again a little easier.
Sure makes us being so proud of them easiest at all…
