College Time for Katy!



Last Sunday we had our last home cooked meal together as a family before Katy headed down to Cedar City. She picked for dinner to have BBQ chicken, mashed potatoes, cookie salad, and rolls. Then we played croquet together, we built a fire and roasted marshmallows. After that we had our family meeting where we tell each other something we love about them. It was a tear jerker. Katy gave each of us a letter that she had written to us. I am telling you when you are raising kids you wonder if you will ever make it and then they grow up and make you really proud.

Then on Monday Katy and I headed to Cedar City for her orientation and other class sessions. Mike and Eric joined us there Thursday night and we spent the weekend together. We had a great time. I am so proud of Katy. Today was a little teary, but we made it through. I think I did most of my crying earlier in the week. I posted a picture of our last Sunday fun and Katy in her apartment. I am really excited for the new journey Katy is about to embark on. What an exciting time of life.

I can't imagine how bittersweet that must be! And I thought 1st grade was tough!
