college

We are off to a new adventure in Life...
Jessica setting up her new room
Sending a child to College!!
At the end of August Ted and I along
with Rachael and Lillian drove to Tuscon
to move Jessica into her new place. She
is attending U of A with a scholarship that
covers tuition and books. Jessica is majoring
in Creative Writing so someday everyone
can read her bestseller novel!!!
It was a good trip (of course Ted was
outnumbered by the girls!) And yes I cried,
but not until it was time to leave her and go
back to mesa. We do get to see her
every now and then, she just came back
home for mine and Ted's birthdays in September, and
she texts Ted and I both for all kinds of things, help
with job applications and english assignments, and to ask
"mom, where do you get paper cups and plates?"
Life is always an adventure isn't it?!
We look forward to many more from all our children!












Lilly and Rachael came to
help too (of course I don't
know how helpful Lilly was?)

Wow, I can't believe that she is old enough to go to college!! It doesn't seem that long ago (to me anyway) that she was just a wee little one. She has grown into a beautiful young woman.

How cool that Jessica gets to go to UofA! I bet she will do great there in all of her classes! I just can't believe how time flies, and that Lilly is already 3! As I was reading your comments on this page I saw that Coco Lucas wrote a comment. She is good friends with my family (pretty much except for me, because I think I moved away before she met any of my family), but the Lucases are all in my parents ward in Pinetop and I know my Mom just loves Coco. I see her leave comments on my parents blog and sister's blog sometimes. How funny. Hope you guys are doing well! Love you all! And Happy Belated Birthday to you, Lisa!! (and Ted too, if you ever read this!!) Emily
