I’m in Los Angeles today making a college visit or two with my (high school senior!) son.
I can’t believe my “baby” is almost ready for college.
Why is it my kids are getting older and I’m not?
I’m sure I’ll take a photo or two while we’re out and about,
But (of course) the day is more about campus information gathering than photography.
He’ll need to make a decision/commitment to a college soon.
We have a whirlwind of college-visit-travel planned over the next two weeks.
(Thank goodness for frequent flyer miles!)
The whole pick-a-college-process is (so) long and complicated.
In state or out of state?
Has the school offered a scholarship? Partial? Full? Or none whatsoever?
What is the campus life like?
Does the college have a high job placement rate upon graduation?
And blah, blah, blah!!
It gets mind boggling.
A few weeks ago, I took this photo while I was in L.A.:

It was taken from Griffith Park Observatory.
I have an emotional attachment to Griffith Park.
When I was a kid, my family would sometimes go hiking there.
One of my first “real” dates was going to a combined music/star event at the Observatory.
Sheesh …. it makes me feel really old to think how long ago that was.
(At least a couple years!!)
If traffic isn’t too bad today, maybe we’ll have some spare time for sight seeing.
And yes, I AM freaking out about this whole day.
How is it possible he’s only six months away from college???
