I'm working today to conserve vacation time and will fly down to Raliegh, NC this evening to meet them. Tomorrow and Saturday have a full agenda of both student and parent orientation programs on campus. We're looking forward to it and expect a fun and exciting weekend. Then Tivy and I will drive home. So one car has to go to NC.
But that leaves 5 kids home with busy schedules of their own. Justin, oldest son and number 2 child is a senior in high school and will also take an advanced calculus class at the community college while finishing high school at the same time. So he needs a car to commute back and forth between home and both schools. (We'll save the discussion of kids and bike commuting for another time).
Dad was going to use a car for work, leave it at the office (1 mile from Airport) and fly out tonight. But one vehicle fell ill and suddenly we're short. So Dad had to give up the keys and bike in. Poor me. Sunny, temps in the 60s. But someone had to sacrifice.
The Puncture Fairy paid a visit as I crossed over the interstate highway on Stewart Ave. Otherwise it really was a delightful ride.
So I've ridden one way to work after a little careful planning to make sure all of right clothing and luggage made it aboard the college bound vehicle for the weekend.
I'll sort out how to fetch the bike after we get back to town. Have a great weekend everybody.
