We’re coming down the home stretch.  Erin is packing her stuff to head off to the dorm TOMORROW!

She’s both really excited (as are all her friends) and occasionally sad about leaving us.  I feel the same way.  Mel does too although she is occasionally frustrated because she is a detailed planner and Erin sometimes just wants to wait and see what happens. 

Most of Erin’s friends have headed off already – some are rushing into sororities, others have just started earlier. 

We’ve been just sitting around the house watching movies and just being together one last time.  Evan’s last day of work is today so he’ll pick up his last paycheck and drive over here to help us move tomorrow.  He’ll be here tonight.

It’s like we’re in the starting gate waiting for the start of a race.
