Boards change over time, but it seems like last year there was a lot more chatter among plebe parents re: the progress of their DD DS through the 6weeks of PS, and the angst of being a Plebe Parent. I hate to beg, but I visit this board (in large part) because of the community it represents. I think your kids are amazing and I think they've found an incredibly rewarding place to study and mature, (sheesh my DD's summer has been pretty ordinary for a Youngster, but EXTRAORDINARY relative to her high school mates). So, how is your Plebe Doing? Did that first letter home say "What Have I DONE?!?" How is the snail mail working out for you? (I kinda enjoyed it). Husband driving you nuts? Wife driving you nuts----more than she would normally? Has DD/DS told you about their amazing company mates? Are you smuggling caffeine yet? (don't reveal methods). Any funny stories from your Plebe? Anything that made you proud or something he/she said that let you know that its all gonna be OK?----Something else? BTW, My honest heartfelt congratulations on your parenting job.
