Okay. Friday was a hard day. We had to move our baby girl into her dorm room at college. College. That doesn't seem right. She has grown up so quickly! We left right after we dropped the boys off at school - stopped by Marshfield to get some breakfast - and made it to Springfield by a little after 9. It wasn't too busy when we first got there, but as the morning went by it got really busy. Abby's room is on the 8th floor of Hutchen's Hall. She's got a pretty nice view from her window. She has a suite style room which is 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen area. She has 3 other roommates. We got to meet Katie and Kelsey, but the girl who will be sharing a bedroom with Abby wasn't going to move in until Saturday. We know that she is from Kansas City, she is a sophmore and her name is Breonna. Can't wait to talk to Abby and see what she's like.
After we got her stuff up to her room we went to get her books and to walk around the campus and find which buildings her classes were in. It was an absolutely beautiful day. Really pretty cool for August. It made walking the campus very enjoyable. After that we took Abby out to eat and to Target to get a few things we had forgotten. By the time we made it back to her room, we didn't have much time before we had to go get the boys at school. The look on Scott's face in this picture pretty well sums up how we both felt - it was very hard leaving our baby girl at college. This will be the first time she will be away from home for such a long time. At least we are close enough to go visit or to go get her and bring her home for the weekend!
It's going to seem like forever until next Friday when she has the chance to come home!!
