College Weekend

Happy Monday!

We are back from our road trip.  Yes, we took a family road trip during my busy time in the shoppe.

Why would we do that?

Soccer of course.

We left Thursday for NC, checked in to our hotel and then...



Since we had this trip planned for 4 months, we had already lined up college tours.  Our daughters are in 8th and 9th grade, but since we were in the area, we figured we'd start the process.

First stop, Wake Forest.

We took the official tour and loved it.  It's beautiful, relatively small and very personal.

Next, we explored Elon.  Similar in size to Wake Forest, beautiful and quaint.  Worth exploring further and taking an official tour. (no photo)

Then we arrived just in time for our scheduled Duke visit.  Everyone knows about Duke. It has 6,500 undergraduates and the same number of graduate students.  
It's a magnificent campus, much larger than the other schools.  
We weren't loving it as much as we expected.

At the end of the day, we were exhausted. It was a lot.

Who knows where my gals will land. I'm going to embrace the process and help them navigate. 

After another night in NC, we returned to reality and back to the shoppe.  
Because this is an exciting week!

Be sure to join us!

Have a great Monday!
