MiniMe and I went on our first college road trip. We went to see/tour UMassAmherst. I know, partyschool. I told her every school is a party school, etc., etc. As we were walking around I said out loud, "I want to go here". MiniMe said, "me too". She has been so bla-zay about colleges, that I was shocked and thrilled that I managed to jump start her. I wish we had gone while she was a junior. It may have prevented that junior slump in her GPA. Spilt milk. She's all jazzed to go now and to work hard to raise her GPA before it's too late.
On our way there (1 3/4 hrs...more like 2+hrs due to my navigation skills. I had googled a map, directions, and used my GPA. One can't be good at everything) anyway, on our way there we both thought then laughed about when Rory and Lorelai went to visit Harvard. That's Gilmore Girls, our favorite show, for those of you who don't know. I'm so lucky to have a girl that doesn't despise me 24 hours a day. I relish the few minutes we have fun together. We'll go to see other schools, but not experience what we did today...2 girls on a road trip.
