Moving Day

Our convoy took Lauren back to school a week ago Saturday. There was a car for her, a car for us (Mom, Dad, boyfriend, brothers, cousin...), and a U-Haul.

Yes, she's off-campus this year, sharing a beautiful old house with three friends.She had a great summer, but was eager to get back to VCU. A bed, a bike, a dresser, etc. meant the trusty minivan was no longer vehicle enough to handle the trip alone.Len took this picture for his mom (I'm sure mine is happy to see it, too!): And there it is:The house is 104 years old, beautifully renovated but with plenty of character left.Lauren's room is on the third floor.It was hot, but we had such a big crew that it didn't take too long to get everything upstairs.Then it was all about unpacking, setting up, returning the truck, etc.After a late lunch we headed for home. I pass Lauren's empty room many times a day, but it's comforting to know she's so happy where she is.
