I'm so glad we did that- just took off to see Mo for the weekend. She was so happy to be able to show us her sophomore tour of campus, town, her house, new friends and their visiting parents. And it was a touch more spring there, sunnier and warmer.
There was a fundraising dinner one night where we were seated at a banquet table full of new parents and freshmen. I watched our Mo brightly engage each one of them, unify the awkward table of strangers with funny anecdotes about adjusting to college life. Stories that made us feel as though we will all survive the experience, and be better for it. She was so adorable. Once again, I was impressed by her effortless charm, her easy style that relaxes and entertains. Later that night I told her so- and that I was really proud of the way she managed the evening. She gave me a wink and a quick hug good night. "Got it from you guys- just like everything else."
