Blast from the Past: Faulkner and Ferdinand

So I wasn't thrilled about getting up at 4 a.m. to drive 200 miles to sit in a history class, but the look on my girls' faces as the stepped onto that college campus was totally worth it. They loved attending a history class where they discussed the Treaty of Versailles, but I think I enjoyed the class on Faulkner best.
Of course I also introduced the girls to the fine cuisine of the cafeteria. I'll pass on posting their review of the food, but my older and wiser self stuck to the salad bar.
And what would an introduction to college life be without meeting some cute guys? D was great and spent a lot of time talking to the girls about activities and college life. They hung on to every word.
So thank you to the faculty, staff and students at Southern Virginia University. You made my girls feel incredibly welcome and excited for college life. It was just what they needed, and it was a lot of fun for this former student to see how much the school has grown since my campus days.
Go Knights!
