RISD baby!


It's official - my son Lex is in college. Yikes. Seems like ten minutes ago we were taking him to kindergarten, now he's a freshman at Rhode Island School of Design, the coolest school in the world. The start of registration was announced by a student wielding a plastic sword. Lex's orientation leader welcomed him with a note - hand written on skinny strips of pink and green vellum - taped to his dorm room wall. Freakin' awesome.

Dear David and Elin, I remember the bittersweetness of sending Ariel off to Columbia. I was sad and happy(for her)at the same time. You guys did a great job. Alex is awesome! You two will continue to share the joy that is your son as he makes his step in life. Hugs, Jessica

Just saw your blog. Iwas looking for images related to RISD to make postcards to send to my daughter who's away for the summer. I came across your site andthought I'd say "hi. My daughter's growing up and going off to RISD, too."
