Oriented? Check ✔

One U.Va. student + one annoying sibling....
(In his own collegiate attire) = one empty wallet. 
But, Mama loves her some

How many U.Va. grads does it take to change a lightbulb?
One to actually change the bulb, and one to wax eloquently about how good the old one was....

I have decided that my Baby Bird is in very fine company.
Oh, yes, indeed.

You are hilarious.

Mama loves her some Mister.

Yes, she's in very fine company! Welcome home.

I am glad you feel better about this!

Gin said...

I can only imagine just how empty your wallet truly is. Mine are two years apart so at least I will get a little reprieve between the two. I think you are right though, she is in some fine company!

Garrett Hall! I have quite the story about that building, but it isn't one that a mother would want to hear, so let's move on.

TJ is indeed the greatest.

Debbie said...

It's is hot down here isn't it? I'm glad your enjoying this moment with the kids! You sound good :)

Linda said...

I hope she will have a great time in college, and that she will learn some things too.

I fondly remember my college days. They were a l-o-n-g time ago, but so GREAT!

Flea said...

Yay. So you're happy with where your girl wound up. That is SO good to hear.

Unknown said...

You are one proud mama, and not without good cause. Your twins are not only gorgeous, they are brilliant.

I'm trying to think of that know, the one about the fruit and the bush. Oh yeah, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree", that one!

I know a few brothers (2) from So CA who attend Villanova. They are the third generation in their family to attend.

Can't wait to see you in VA....I am Yankee born, you know.

Deb said...

Glad you made it home safely. I love the college photo of your two proud offspring!

Nancy said...

I just wrote my last tuition check last week - I feel your pain. One of our friends had three in at once. Ours were about 4 years apart, making it a bit easier. But of course, it's getting used to them being gone at once that might be harder.

Aloha ha ha!

Great looking kids, and Mister is to die for....

Perhaps we should toast Mr. Jefferson at Blog Fest. Between you and Marlene, I'm sure it will be a good one!!!

Glad you guys had a good trip:)

Driftwood and Pumpkin said...

Mr. Jefferson Rocks! I so have to get to Monticello.

Empty Nest=Empty Wallet...unless you're got a two dollar bill (Jefferson) in there.

Sassy said...

My mister sits about that still sometimes and never makes a sound as can be a good thing....yours is pretty cute! I am really glad you are feeling okay with her new stomping ground and I am just curious how are the twins feeling about being separated?

Hilary said...

Great to hear... and you SO make me laugh. :)

Daryl said...

Of course she is, now back away and keep your hands were we can see them

Welcome home xox

Unknown said...

Can not wait to have Bird as a resident of this great state for the next 4 or more years.

Wa hoo waaaaaa!!!!

Keetha said...
