This week, I have traveled to North Carolina with my children and the older son's girlfriend to visit a couple universities, primarily N.C. State and Univ of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. I grew up in this area and went to N.C.State for my undergraduate degree so it was like coming home. But now as a parent, it was a bit different. Visiting the schools was both interesting and exhausting. I tried to give my son and his girlfriend their space as they observed classes and spoke current students. In that time, I was able to photograph some of the beautiful flowers, especially the dogwoods.
We stayed in Durham with my aunt and uncle so one afternoon we did stop at Duke University too to see Duke Chapel.
