RTW – Summer After Graduation

For Road Trip Wednesday this week, YA Highway asks How did you spend/how will you spend the summer after graduation? First of all, my high school graduation was so long ago, I spent it TPing dinosaurs and riding saber-toothed tigers. It was tricky climbing on those big cats without getting bitten, but pre-historic catnip usually did the trick to lure the beasts into submission. We’d also grab fronds off the tree ferns to use as shade since air-conditioning hadn’t yet been invented.

This summer, it’s my son and daughter-in-law who have graduated (PhDs in economics) and part of my summer will be involved in helping them move from the West Coast to the East Coast. We have a regular translocation conga line planned, with my son and husband flying out one day with the two cats, and my daughter-and-law and me flying with my beautiful toddler granddaughter the next. Those two days should be quite the adventure.

I hope you all have a fabulous summer.

    Hahah, that introduction was wonderfully fun! I wish my graduation summer had been spent with dinosaurs! Though no air conditioning is a bummer πŸ˜‰

    Good luck with the move and congrats to your son and daughter-in-law on the impressive PhDs!

    Dealing with my domestic house cats is bad enough. Those saber-tooth tigers must have been rough!
    Hope the transition to the east coast goes well! I’m out here (I call it the better coast ;)) and it’s hotter than Hades right now.

    Sounds like an adventurous post-graduation for you! Not sure I’d have the nerve to TP dinosaurs or ride saber tooth tigers :). Congrats to the two new grads in your family, and best of luck helping them with their move. By the way, I love your blog and have awarded you the 7 X 7 Link Award. Details are on my blog here:
