Friday Finds - 21 Aug 09

It's a sad day for me, I just sent my son off to college today. There ought to be some support groups for emptynesters. Anyway, I'm so proud of him because the acceptance rate to this awesome public university is only about 26%. And there is no brownie points for me being an alumni. Anyway, in honor of the occasion, my theme for this Friday's finds is "Berkeley".

Congrats, proud mama! Berkeley is a great school (I live in Oakland); my kids go to ID Tech camp there in the summers, and my 13 year old thinks he wants to go to college there.
Feeling sad for you, too, it's a bittersweet time :)

Chin up, Theresa. But it is "for sure" you have caught the vibe of Berkeley. Nice collection!

Congratulations!! How cool, Berkley is one of the few colleges I know about (from books or movies).
I wish I could go back to school, such fun times!

Thank you all for the overwhelming support. Yeah, I wish I can return to school too. It's just such an intellectually stimulating experience. Hope the youngsters these days realize that and enjoy every moment of it.

I love that you were able to find items that capture the spirit of the school that your son is going to, Theresa! Nice collection.
