...Oh whoa whoa whoa, oh Kelsi... (song lyrics by Metro Station)
So she's gone and done it... my little chicky flown the coop. She's all grown up, and gone off to college. I can hardly believe it.
Brad and I had the opportunity to go and take her up to Rexburg at BYU-I this last week. What an incredible place to be. Even though I went to that school and I'm moderately familiar with the campus and how things run, as a parent it became much more meaningful. What an impressive institution. If there was any doubt before (there really wasn't) I can feel fully confident that she is going to be well taken care of. The spirit definitely dwells there.
Here she is with her van full of belongings.
It seems like she is going to get along with her roommates. They are all from Utah. Their names are Stephanie, Brenna and Bethany. I wish I would have gotten a picture of them together before we left, but I guess that'll have to be a post for another time. This, however, is the building where they live.
I did get a picture of the sisters before the parting of the ways
So how am I doing you ask?
It's amazing how many emotions I can feel, one right after the other.
"I'm prodigiously proud of her. I defy even Sir William Lucas to produce such a daughter. (Just a little Pride and Prejudice humor there.)
Good Luck! I love you Kelsi. I really would swim the ocean for you.
