Parenting: Parents Weekend

November 4, 2011 7:43:36 AM PDT
My 10-year-old son Micah and I spent last weekend on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University visiting my oldest son, Jason, who's a freshman there. (My husband stayed home to watch our 15-year-old's varsity football game and coach Micah's flag football team). It was my first college Parents Weekend and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. My own parents didn't visit me in college, because they lived here in Philadelphia, I went to school in Chicago and the plane fares were too expensive.
