All those years of Boy Scout summer camp paid off nicely, as Julian came home with less stuff, it seems, than he went to school with. Everything in his dorm room fit into 2 foot lockers, a duffel bag, and a back pack that wasn't even crammed. The portable vacuum cleaner went with me for the trip and then right back home. All in all, an easy finish to the first year in college.
He's now thinking driver's education, job, car, etc., so now we can worry about an entirely different spectrum of challenges.
How long until the trip back in the other direction?
