College Road Trip!

Just got back yesterday afternoon from a blitz trip to Los Angeles to show my son some colleges.

I’d forgotten about LA’s beach culture…traffic, concrete and beaches! And there are no old people in LA. Not sure where they have migrated to, but the bulk of the population is 18-30, incredibly good looking, fit and tanned. No wonder they have based all of those teen TV reality shows there…it’s all true!

We wanted to give Tad a taste of big, little, medium, private, public, and an idea of living in Southern California. And so we did.

We checked out USC, UCLA (wow wow wow), UCSD, UCSB, Westmont (my alma mater and personal favorite), and Pepperdine.

One thing about traveling with two males (my husband and son)…I saw every single basketball court on those campuses. Only two libraries…but every single Athletic Facility.


So what was Tad’s response to this highly planned trip?

He’s more confused than ever.

    You mean the basketball courts didn’t clear it all up for him?! LOL

    Well…he did stare longingly at the John & Nell Wooden court at the Pauley Pavilion in UCLA…and we did spend a long time watching videos of John Wooden.

    Gotta admit, John Wooden is a hero! A man of faith and integrity.

    He needs to see some Texas schools to gain clarity!
