Last weekend we went to Alabama to visit my middle son, Justin. We had a fantastic time! We brought our youngest son, Chandler, with us too. He is a junior in high school and has no idea what he wants to do for college, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do a school visit. It gave him an idea as to what a big Division 1 school, far from home, would be like. So we started our weekend with an official school tour Friday morning. (Typical teenager, can't do anything without his phone :-))
Here's a little glimpse of his apartment. I don't know about you, but the places I lived in as a student were no where near as nice as this! He lives in a 4 bedroom/4 bathroom townhouse, fully applianced and furnished including a washer & dryer with utilities included to a capped amount. It is off-campus housing that caters to students and very common in Tuscaloosa. They also have a clubhouse with a pool, hot tub, pool tables, movie theater, fitness center, etc. Amazing.
So that was our weekend! I had a great time, but the best part about the entire weekend was seeing my son, in his element, doing his thing and enjoying his friends. I am a lucky mom that I got to see and experience that. It makes it a little easier to have him so far from home when I know first hand how happy he is.
