We arrived in Cleveland Monday night. Joey checked into his dorm at Oberlin College on Tuesday morning.

Below: a very strange tree outside Joey's dorm that I have never seen before.
The back side of Joey's dorm. Joey and Zach's room is on the shady park (quad) side of the dorm building. A much prettier, shadier spot. Their room is on the third (top) floor right in the middle of the picture below.
Of course Joey's side of the room is very eclectic and very colorful.
Aunt Tiffy will notice the colorful bird she gave Joey when he was in the Neonatal ICU just hours after his traumatic birth almost 19 years ago (as you can see it all worked out... he looks "almost" normal :0). Grammy will notice one of her many beautiful quilts gracing Joey's bed. The puffin pillowcase is there too, behind the gray pillows.
Zachary's side of the room is a little more subdued:

And so it begins... Joey's college years. Sad and happy, but mostly happy and exciting!
