Four of my boys are together tonight - playing ping-pong and pool in the dorm lounge, talking, laughing, enjoying their brotherly competition and teasing. I think Thomas is so proud to be able to introduce his brothers to his hallmates and friends. I'm happy to hear their banter. I just wish Jonathan could be here, too, but it won't be long til we'll have everybody together at Thanksgiving!
It's been a full day of college activities - chapel, where Michael Cassidy was the speaker, meals in the Great Hall, class, admissions tour, and more! Tomorrow we will "do" Chattanooga.
Well, they are off to hang out with some friends and I am heading to the quiet of the mountainside guest cottage for now.
Adding to the gift list...
15. Brothers that love each other and bring a smile to this mother's face.
16. The beauty of fall on the mountain here - gold, orange, rust and deep red.
17. Traveling mercies.
