The nest is now empty

This weekend we took Thea to college. She is attending the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. It is an interesting school in that the campus is downtown San Francisco. The University owns about 30 buildings downtown. They have their own bus system that connects the properties. Thea's dorm is the old Commodore Hotel. It was built in 1928 to house merchant marines in between sea trips. The University has converted it into a dorm. Thea's room is on the sixth floor. Her room mate is Ashy Johnson a Fashion Design major from Fresno. They both are the youngest and last to leave home in their families. Fortunately we were able to move her in on Friday because the elevator broke on Saturday. The AAU seems very business like and things were well organized for all the new students arriving. AAU has about 8,000 full time enrollment.

Work hard and good success to Thea!

Congrats to Thea. But my experience is that they all just keep coming home. I am not complaining, it is just interesting.

Way to go Thea! Thea probably doesn't remember me, but I have distinct memories of her being so little and say, "I'm not silly, I'm Thea" Crazy how fast time moves!
