Today was the long anticipated day when (most of) the Smiths came for tea! We had a lovely time with Karen and the newly-arrived-and-soon-to-depart Christina and the off-to-college-for the-first-time Elizabeth.
There was gnome croquet, which offered some unique photographic opportunities.
The girls channeling "American Gothic":
We couldn't resist recreating "Christina's World."
We adore these adorable girls.

While I have been waiting I've downloaded a drawing app on my iPad. As you can see, the kitties are peeved.

M realized that today, September 3, marks exactly 25 years since we started college.
In those long-ago days there was no such thing as texting. We weren't able to talk on the phone for several days so we had to send letters. "I'm pretty sure your dorm is nicer than mine, even though I haven't the faintest inkling what yours looks like," I wrote to M.
This is M in her attic room at Washburn House. Note peeling wallpaper and map of England.
Washburn looked a lot better on the outside.
Here's me as a first-year.
The Mt Holyoke campus was ridiculously scenic. Here's a 25-year-old shot from my scrapbook.
Ah, the memories. I'm glad it happened... and glad it's over.
