We took a quick trip to Atlanta to watch our oldest DS (Michael) defend his thesis for his PhD in Physics from Georgia Tech. He did a great job and has now completed all his requirements for his PhD which will be officially awarded at the next GT graduation in Dec. He's now busy interviewing for post-doc positions, some in the US and some in Europe. (He already has a couple of offers.) He's flying to Europe soon to check out those. We're SO proud of him!!!
As a bonus, Atlanta has been having unseasonably cool weather lately. It was in the 60's and 70's while we were there and we enjoyed the short break from the Texas heat.
Obviously not a whole lot of stitching has been done this past week except on the model that I can't show. It's turning out to be really cute.
We'll move our "baby" to his dorm at UT Austin at the end of this week so in the meantime, we'll finish up buying the rest of the stuff he'll need. There's not too much of that, though. In addition to making dinners he likes this week, I'll bake some cookies for him to take with him for a little reminder of home.
After we drop him off our empty nest phase officially starts.
