Of all of the things to do when preparing to send a kid off to college, the one I hadn't really planned on was buying a house. My list included: Stress out. Worry about missing said child. Apply to schools. Send child to take SAT. Worry about whether I need to buy twin or twin extra long sized sheets for dorm room. Will dorm roommate like Badger paraphernalia as much as T? Is a Badger snuggy going too far?
Yes, I had lots of things to think about but When will it need a new roof? wasn't on the list ... until last week when I put in an offer on this cute little gem.
T and I are planning a camp-out after it closes. I figure the weeks worth of hotel we're not paying for ought to cover that months house payment - maybe two! (It's a REALLY small house!) We'll need to pack a lot of things - coffeemaker noticeably missing from this shot!
SAT, applications, and acceptance letters are done and crossed off the list. Closing on house, visiting campus, and preparing for T to move so far away ... well, let's just say I have a lot of work to do!
Beautiful shots like this make me think it will all be worth it. What a fantastic place to go to school!
