We left last Wednesday afternoon (a bit later than I had hoped) and headed north on a little trip. This was the amazing sunset we saw as we headed up the turnpike. So, where did we go???
To take Miss B to her UF Preview session. It was quite the whirlwind with lots and lots of info. We went to the parent sessions, while she attended the student sessions. One of the things we learned is that they really want the students responsible for everything. In other words, "Parents back off". That is going to be a challenge. I don't want to run things, but I like being able to look over her shoulder to make sure things are taken care of. Especially when it comes to dealing with all the financial stuff. But, it will certainly be a good learning experience (for all of us). It was great to speak with other parents, as well as students to gain some helpful hints and tips. We were also amazed at all the clubs and activities the university has to offer. And most everything is free for the students. Miss B also got to spend time with a few of her friends who are doing summer classes, and even attended a fun event (also known as a party). She was happy to head home with her fall schedule (with no Friday classes), as well as a new Mac (required for her major). Oh, and I learned that Gators never tire of saying "Go Gators". LOL
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
