August 26 Day 901: Border Run

Washington-Oregon border that is. It was a quick down-and-back to Salem, Oregon to drop off my youngest for his sophomore year of college.

I loved our time together just talking.

A cloudy day means we unshuttered the sun roof.

He was pleased with his new space and allowed me to take photos.

It was emotionally easier to drop him off this year than last. I know he is going to be just fine. And should something happen, it’s possible to get down and back in a day if needed, right?

Here’s hoping this can be a more typical year for college students and faculty everywhere.
