b started orientation this week. so far he has climbed over obstacle courses at camp williams, met his first-semester group partners, attended a bunch of leadership / professional workshops and become known as "the nintendo guy."
first day of school -- they had to dress professional. i thought he looked cute:
last night we went to a bbq and i finally got to meet all the people he's been hanging out with this week -- and who he will be hanging out with, probably more than he'll be with me, for the next two years. everyone was really nice! and surprisingly, not evvvveryone had kids. yay! maybe i'll have kid-less friends here.
though we did have the bbq at a very child-friendly park, and there WAS a table marked "kid food" [chicken nuggets + fruit + cookies and candy -- with a distinct sign that said "children only" but you KNOW i lasted about 10 minutes before i kyped a handful for myself. come on, big kids like cookies too!]. after everyone finished eating we stayed at the tables and talked with people, but 90% of the group migrated to the playground with their ninos. i guess some things never change.
also i would like to say that so far my favorite thing about utah is being able to legally talk on my cell phone while driving. though of course that means IDIOTS are talking on their cell phones too and thus not driving well, but i like calling my mom on my way home from work without wrestling my hands-free earpiece.
