Summer is in full swing in my house. I've got kids going away to camp, back-to-school wish list items being purchased, and our yearly vacation to North Carolina is quickly approaching.
Earlier this month I wrote how my oldest daughter had decided she wanted to go to the University of Miami. Well, that plan may have changed. One of the great things I love about the summer is for my kids to experience "University Life." Since 2015 at least one of my kids have participated in a speciality summer camp that takes place on a college campus. This year Haley will stay for a week at both the University of Tampa and Stetson University. In fact, her week at UT concluded just last week. And wow! She loved it.
UT is a beautiful campus, right on the Hillsborough River, with Downtown Tampa also serving as its backdrop. Haley spent a week at the UT Band Camp. She lived on campus in a dorm and studied music theory and played her flute, for hours each day. And she loved it. She even went so far to talk to the music department chair about what it's like to study at UT.
