I just wanted to send my best wishes to all our kids who are headed off to college for the first time! Here's to a wonderful freshman year for our 2015's and a great year to one and all!

    Fishymom, thank you for the super sentiment! Best of luck to your D - my D is counting the days until the first day of classes, which translates into her first day of practice :) Wishing your D a great year!

    Thanks, Fishymom. The timing of your message is perfect for our family. We're two time zones from home delivering DD to her school. Move in day was today; goodbyes will be tomorrow.

    Last night her coach hosted a reception for the freshmen athletes and their families. It was nice to see the immediate bonding among the team and for me it eases the transition to see that she is already part of a new "family".

    Best of luck to the incoming class, and to their parents! Some parents will have a difficult time with the seperation especially first-timers. My wife and I were first-timers last year and I was able to better understand and deal with the situation by reading Don't tell me what to do, just send money by Helen E Johnson. It is about the transition of your relationship with your son or daughter, and last I checked public libraries are free! Good luck!

    Yes, congrats to all, I hope you have landed well and have great years.

    My S told me one of the best things about competing in college was that he got to see us so often during his season-made that freshman year transition a little easier.

    We would just check in briefly-drop off some healthy goodies-and then chat for a bit after his event-just a little time together, I didn't think it mattered much to him but apparently it did.

    We didn't speak with the coaches unless spoken to, or distract anyone.

    Can't wait til this winter-already booking hotels.
