Rochester visit

Annabelle, Fred, and I spent the past couple days in New York visiting the University of Rochester. There have been a bunch of little coincidences over the past few months where it felt like the universe was saying, "Don't forget to check out Rochester!" We figured we would like it, but none of us expected to be quite as impressed as we were. It's got great academics, wonderful musical opportunities (both on the River Campus as well as at the Eastman School of Music), and that quirky vibe that we can't really describe but that we recognize when we see it. Oh, and did I mention it's also a beautiful campus?

Annabelle sat in on a math class yesterday morning, and then the afternoon was taken up with our campus tour and information session and her admissions interview. In the evening we got together with a friend of hers from middle school who is a freshman there now and loving it:

We went out to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for some great food and to get the inside scoop about life at Rochester.

This morning, Annabelle worked on her calculus homework in the airport while we waited for our flight home:
