Cassie to College

Today we took Cassie to College. Here is what the car looked like. We are transitioning from Huskie green and white to Pioneer blue and orange. She could not sleep last night so an hour in the car is a good thing. Yes, we were at America's most popular restaurant.
All (non-current sports) freshmen HAD to show up today. The drill was to pull up close to the assigned dorm, stack the stuff while the student ran around collecting paperwork and signing other papers. Then I got to find a parking space... 1/4 mile away was pretty good considering there was close to gridlock on the roads.
The pile below is the personal stuff she took to last until Christmas. There is a computer, oboe and a bike. Surprisingly, her's was one of the smaller piles. I saw office chairs with foot stools, futons and big screen TVs.
For the joy of being the 'pile sitter' while daughter and father put together a bed loft I have been awarded a sun burn. I got the better end of the deal. Dorm rooms were occupied via stair wells and students/parents carrying personal contents up said stairs. She lucked out with a 2nd floor room.

This is what 1/2 a dorm room looks like, lofted.
This is the last goodbye with a card that sang, 'Call Me'. I will visit her late this month. Then we will have a lot of new things to talk about.
