Well, April 14, 2010 that young lady headed off on a great adventure. Across the country (3 days) in the train to her new life as an intern at Blackberry Meadows Farm outside of Pittsburgh, PA.
I dropped her off at the Emeryville Amtrak station with a couple of suitcases, her gardening hat, her Felco clippers and her bike in a box.
As all parents know, it is more than just a long trip and time away from home; it is a fundamental change. This part of life with both the kids at home has been wonderful.
