College ... Already?

Last week I took Marie to college. It doesn't seem possible, but that is surely the case. We have had nearly every day of the past eight months together ... it's been such a special time for us. However, I knew this day would come.

We had a truly wonderful week in Utah visiting long-time family friends and extended family (you could say we're practically family) - Drew and Celeste Pearson. They have an adorable almost two-year-old son Ty and a little brother on the way.

It was a busy week taking care of paperwork at school, shopping for American booty to bring back to Heidelberg, enrolling at Institute, and finding the student ward. After all was said and done, Marie was just about set for school.

Watching my daughter embark on a new season of her life is where it's at.


  1. We had so much fun having you here. The time went so quickly and with a few kinks that lucky have seemed to work themselves out. I LOVE the quilt you made me... can I say that enough! Ty and I get to fight over it... he usually wins cause he looks so cute cuddled up in it. We love having Marie here with us and hope you know we will do our best to take care of her.

  2. I love you, mom! I'm so glad you were here with me. :)

  3. I am watching you have all your kids grow up, knowing my turn is around the corner. How fun to take a girls trip and drop her off!

  4. Congratulations! What a huge life step for all of you.
