Okay, I know most kids go back to school after Labor Day. My daughter even started her junior year at Warner Pacific College back in August. But my son went back to the University of Oregon just yesterday. School doesn't start at UofO until September 28th but he has a job and an orientation meeting for the new staff. Plus, he has to get his apartment ready for the new year.
So we helped Luke move back into his apartment, which is right across the street from Hayward field, a pretty prime location for the University of Oregon. I should know because I lived in Douglas dorm my freshman year (you can see the dorm I lived in, 30 years ago, in the first picture). That was before Hayward looked so fancy. But it seems like life repeats itself. Here's to Luke's senior year at UofO!!! Hope he'll have loads of fun 'cause we're going to miss him.
So that's my official END to summer and it's raining :(
I know it's Portland, Oregon and there's a reason we're called The Ducks - webfeet and rain go hand-in-hand but I just wasn't ready for the rain - yet. Guess it's time to get ready for fall and accept the fact that the kids are back at school :(
