I'm a CC addict, but I'm generally a lurker (and infrequent poster.) I'm about to send my firstborn off to Yale next month. Like some others, it's not as huge an adjustment as it is for others, as he's gone to boarding school for HS. So we did get a head start on the idea of him being away from home. Still, this is a whole new ballgame, so I'm looking forward to the continued guidance and advice from those who have been there before or are muddling along for the first time!
