My son is college age. I have been surprised at how fast he has grown. I certainly do not remember my own childhood going so quickly, but my mom said that she saw me grow up in a blink of an eye, too. I guess your perspective changes when you are looking at things through an adult’s eyes. When my son told me that he had been accepted to a college in Georgia, I was happy. I told him that he needed to let me go with him to look for apartments in Atlanta GA so that he would get the best buy for his money.
My son told me that he is an adult now and that he wanted to do it on his own. I made sure to remind him who would be paying for the apartment and that he had no choice. He agreed with me. My wife decided she wanted to come, too. So, we decided to make a little vacation of it and we both took time off from work. We left on a Thursday and we hoped that we would be able to find a nice place to rent for our son by Sunday morning, before our flight left that afternoon. I knew that the city was large, but I was unprepared for just how big it is. There is so much to do and see there! Coming from Wisconsin where things are slow, quiet and somewhat boring, it was a wonderful culture shock. My son found the place that he wanted to lease by the time we looked over our 4th property. All four of them had been really nice and each offered so much more than the rentals do in our home state. The prices are nice for what you get, too.
