A day after West Virginia University’s Ginny Thrasher won the first gold medal at the Rio Olympics, I’m in Morgantown.
Our son is starting his college career a week early. We’re here for band camp. He’s a freshman member of the Mountaineer Marching Band, otherwise known as “The Pride of West Virginia.”
Today was registration day.
No more basement living for our oldest kid. Tomorrow, it’s sink or swim. We’re moving him into his dorm room and then I’m leaving him to it.
He probably won’t ever win Olympic gold, but I feel like there should be some sort of prize for parents who have gotten their kids this far.
