My son, Ed, attends college at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. It's been fun living vicariously through him and hearing about all the activity in capital. He attended both Obama's inauguration, as well as the inaugural concert a couple days beforehand. He was excited to be at both, but he says it was miserable - they got up at 5 to walk to the venues and then stood for hours in the freezing cold. Great to be part of an historical moment, though.
He's been home this summer, which has been wonderful. He leaves tomorrow so I'm feeling a bit sad.
