Memory of the Week:
Dropping off my eldest son off at college. Last weekend I sent my son off to the University of Notre Dame. It was an amazing experience see him welcomed by his dorm mates at #SiegfriedHall. Pulling up to the hall to get him situated, seeing the older guys clapping and cheering, welcoming him. One guy yelled out, “Christian! What’s happening dude?” I smiled so big inside. He has an awesome roommate from Long Island. He is so stoked about his schedule, his dorm, just being at Notre Dame. My dad would be so proud. One final note. As I pulled away from the dorm and saw Christian out of my rear view mirror raising his hand to wave good bye, tears streamed down my face and it took all I had to just keep driving. At that moment it was all surreal to me, images of my boy growing up flashed through my head like a slide show, it all happened so fast. The last thing I remember as I drove off the campus, the marching band was practicing in an open field, playing the Fighting Irish Football fight song, I knew then everything would be okay.
