We are still with friends in IN and haven't experienced the empty house yet, but we are doing good.
Good friends and laughter make everything better...that's for sure!!
I was not feeling well today at all, so I just laid around and read my kindle most of the afternoon.
Hoping I'll feel better before we leave!
So we packed up the car today and there is not one inch of room left. This bottom picture shows how much room Jared will have on the trip and he also has stuff to put at his feet!!!
Not a great picture but we are on the road! Indiana or bust!!!
We will definitely be fighting to drive on this 11 hour trip because the driver has the most room!!! My knees are currently up against the dash board....ugh!
We made it to Rita and Mike's house last night! We are so blessed to have such great friends. Honestly, it feels like we have known them forever! So neat to see how God arranged this friendship!! It's a treasure!
Moving Jared in.
The room is just a rectangle with no closets, just walls. The furniture is all modular and stackable...very cool idea and gives a myriad of ways to design the room!
turned out pretty good!
But after looking at all the other rooms and ways they set them up, I have a feeling it will change sometime!
Thursday started with Jared taking placement tests and then ended with a family BBQ in what they call the "valley". It was the perfect day for a picnic!!!
Then we headed to the auditorium for the President's convocation...which was also very inspiring! Each day, I am more impressed with this university!
Their theme this year is Beyond Me.
This morning we got mixed up and went to the kid's worship time instead of the parents....I was not upset. It was so amazing to see and hear these kids worship openly and freely. I was obviously very emotional most of this day....knowing I was going to have to say goodbye to Jared soon.
We ended up having to say goodbye as he went to lunch with his mentor group, which was good because it forced me to keep my emotions in.....but not for long. He looks so happy and so excited. It's hard to be sad, but my mama's heart definitely took a hit.
We headed up to our friends lake house and I have to say......friends are GREAT medicine!!!
What a great way to start a day!!!
coffee, beautiful scenery, time with God and time with friends....perfect!
We were so excited to be here when our friend Mark was having a party. It was great to see him and all our old friends. Hurricane Isaac rained on our parade though!!!
Tonight, I didn't get any pictures but I haven't laughed this much or this hard in a LONG time. Seriously, we were crying we laughed so hard.
Hope you all are having a wonderful Labor day weekend!!
