“Parting was always bittersweet. But far less so knowing that our daughters were happy and in good hands.” Ralph Gardner Jr. P’11,’16 reflects on Family Weekends past.
Our October trips to Gambier for Family Weekend have become one of the highlights of the year.
It’s time for us to move aside, look on lovingly and interestedly, but get on with the business of our own lives. To tend to our children more quietly, without unsolicited advice or too many questions.
At this halfway point, I couldn’t be more pleased with my family’s Kenyon experience. But I’m reminded that the second half of anything only raises expectations, and I’m excited for the journey ahead.
This last celebratory trip to Kenyon marks the end of an era for us parents as well as for our children.
