Dropping Emmy off at College

Cal Poly Pomona
Sept. 22, 2013

< < previous | next > >

I had spent so many years freting over this day -- when you take a child you've been caring for every day for 18 years, and just drop them off at college -- that by the time it finally arrived, I had pretty much worked it through.

We helped Em set up her dorm room, lock up her bike, and find some lunch from the Poly Trolley food truck (pretty good tempura avocado tacos). Then we said goodbye. We would see her next weekend.

Back at the Rancho, Billy wondered where his Emmy was. We did our best to distract him. But we couldn't explain it.
