LO and I just came back from my SIL’s college graduation and I’m already feeling a little melancholy about one day going to his. She graduated from a small honors, liberal arts school. Cap and gown was optional even for both students and professors. LO loved the costume parade. He saw a “Baby” Shark and Spider-Man. Of course I also thought about how much his education is going to cost us and hope his college fund grows enough to finance his dream’s foundation. We have $60k in there now and 15 more years to grow that and contribute more and yet that feels so inadequate.

Oh, and this happened...immediately after the ceremony was over the school had appetizers and desserts out. Of course LO managed to dip his brand new sneakers in the very artificial blue cupcake frosting.

Anyone else feeling anxious & excited about LO’s college experience!?
