When we arrived, seven friends were there to help us. I had arranged to borrow two dollies and had a cooler of water. Turns out I was over-prepared, as the dorm had dollies everywhere for our use, and they were giving out water at every corner. It was so hot, so that was definitely helpful! Thanks to my middle son and his friends, we moved in everything in one trip! How awesome is that, not to have to trudge back to the car numerous times???!!Thanks so much to the friends who helped!

They have a nice sized room that was already painted blue, which works well with the bedding Allison got! We got her bed made and most things unpacked, although our picture hanging system needed some work, so we left that to her to fix. She met her roommate, Amanda, who actually is from our town, but went to another school.

We went to dinner as a family, and then David, my son, whisked Allison away back to campus. It was easier leaving her, driving off with him, as we've seen so many times before, and knowing that he is ten minutes away if she needs something, plus there with so many who are already friends......wasn't as bad leaving as I thought it would be. Do I miss her? You betcha! Do I think she is going to have a great year? You betcha. So begins the getting used to the empty nest.....excuse me but I have a little cleaning to do....and coming up this Thursday, our first installment of the GETTING IT done party...who's in???
