The Usual Bye Mom Picture

So I have confessed I am a worrier, but I seem to be a selective one.

I was worried we wouldn't get to the airport in time. But we got there quick enough (2 hrs 15 minutes with no traffic). Ernest checked in with a bit of time to spare (before the 45 min before flight limit). After we left him, he found out there was a flight delay which caused a missed connection and a reroute. He spend six more hours at the airport.

I didn't seem to be at all worried about that. He's been around the world and on mountains. He can deal with an airport.  I hope he got a nap. His luggage beat him back.

He called last night. Yes, of course he wanted something, but it was nice to talk to him anyways! Classes are good. He has a long weekend to visit his sweetie.

I've been worried about his feet in cold weather as the only shoes I ever see him in are canvas converse but he assured me he could wear his his hiking boots if it got too bad.

Where in the world is he going to school? Is he in my neck of the woods?

Young dude NEEDS the beard, with the wind chill :)

Our scoutmaster would say not to worry about his feet if he's got wool socks. Hiking boots are good.

Boston is such a cool place (and literally cool right now).

Moms have to worry. He'll be fine I bet, but you still have to fret.

And you even get a "Bye, Mom" picture! I don't get those, so please consider yourself very blessed indeed.
My kids almost never bother with coats here, even with below freezing temps, and I've given up on worrying (much) about them.
