MOVED OUT... AND IN...

I am still in a bit of shock and denial that Hillary has officially moved out. Comments from people have included, "It will never be the same," and "Once she's gone, she's gone," and "This will totally change your life as you once knew it." Nothing I particularly wanted to hear...Hillary abhors being in pictures as well as me taking pictures while she's in close proximity. Thus, I have four shots--the BEFORE and AFTER pictures of her room at Wyview Park.

She is living in "on-campus" housing (at least a mile walk from BYU--good thing she has a car) with two other girls that share a room. Hillary was happy to get the single room. They have a bathroom they all share and a large kitchen and living room area.
I'm glad she's taking a "Food Preparation" class this summer as one of her Major requirements (Family & Consumer Science Ed.) so I'll know she'll at least be eating something decent twice a week during her 3-hour labs.Hillary does have a 2-week break between summer term and Fall semester so I'm sure she'll come home then since she'll need a place to stay... won't she???

I find myself tearing up as I read this. I'm such a baby. Was it hard for you or did it go ok? (I need you to tell me it wasn't too bad :) I only have 6 years before Mikkall is there and the way time flies it will be here before I know it.

You'll see her--a few weeks of roommates and apartment food and Sunday dinners with the family start looking so much more appealing!

I can't believe it! I agree with Misty it is sad. My kids are still young but when you count the years and how many are left it just doesn't seem long enough. Time goes by way to fast. Thanks for thinking of Tanner. I agree he should be in an ad. He is such a trooper he can't wait for fun friday next week. Thanks for your love and support!

How exciting. I'm sure she will miss home but as time goes on things only get better. It's great to see your child grow and mature and learn to appreciate! Her room is really cute.
