Two kids coming home from college for the summer and bringing all their stuff makes for a VERY crowded home. So today everything college related gets washed/cleaned and sealed then stored in the outbuilding for the summer. Our third child has been home all semester but she let her apartment mates use her stuff for the semester even though she lived at home so we had to pick up and sort through her stuff. She's done with college so we'll store all her stuff until she knows where she's going once she gets a job. Could be she's staying home for a year or two to pay down some debt.

It was crazy nuts moving kids home. Mostly everything is cleaned but not all has been put away though it is ready to move to barn.
My youngest child's attitude has kicked in in a very negative way. Too tired from the long college year and thinks she needs a break before looking for jobs. Going on a camping trip in June that costs a lot of money, a laptop battery that died and costs a lot of money. Yet she doesn't see the correlation to expenses and jobs and how they need each other. She doesn't like being home where there are my rules to live by and only one car for all three kids to share (it has worked for many years and it will work again this year).

The older two kids are fine and just don't challenge like the youngest one. Oldest daughter graduated college on Sat. and has a FT job beginning on June 22 and middle child son is taking a class and we carpool together so that works well.

Thanks for asking, Cathy!
