September 3, 2010 – Claire Settles in at Macalester

It’s going off to college weekend for Claire (and us!).  Macalester has an extremely long parent orientation – three days!  We’re calling it the helicopter parent orientation and doubt Linda will stay for it all.

Here all of Claire’s “stuff” neatly fits in the new Subaru.  She refers to the contents of the car as the essence of Claire.

New student on campus.

Her room, all set up – noticeable in my eyes are the Indian tapestry, mommade quilt, and sock monkey.  OK, throw in the Indian disco ball and periodic table as well! We look forward to the reports from her next adventure!
