Where is College?

Where oh where is Katie?

Check the map…



Read the signs..




Look at the scenery…



Do you know yet?

Katie left us a week ago for her sophomore year in college at a new school, new roommates, and a final decision on a major (elementary and special ed!).

She and I moved her stuff in 95 degree weather. It was lovely fun, let me tell you.

But when I moved her in, I left wishing I was going to college now too. Check it out…

Her building…



her balcony…



and the views off the balcony…




And that’s just the outside!

Her bedroom…




bathroom…



and kitchen….



with decorations proving girls live there…





Plus a full sized washer and dryer! Definitely not the basic dorm room I had in college!

We went for a short visit today so the rest of the family could see where she is living.






A quick stop back off at her room and we headed home.

Wonder if we’ll be welcome again??

just wait until those trees outside her window start changing. The campus is BEAUTIFUL in the fall! I'm glad she is all settled in in every area :)

Wow! Is that really a dorm or is it an apartment? She is one lucky woman, for sure. I remember the beautiful cinder block walls of my expensive, private university dorm room. It was more like a cell block than a dorm room. Ah, the good old days.

You must be proud (flattered?) that she's following in your professional footsteps!

that is so nice! I wonder what it will be like when the little ones go off to college.
