Still in Utah, but with family

I can't put into words how tickled I was to see Emma and Jackson while we were in Utah because when they walked in the door to Art and Karen's house, both kids lit up and Jackson exclaimed "Granddaddy and Grandma!" Both kids were very happy to see us. 

Dropping the child off at college

Matt didn't want us fussing over him and taking a lot of pictures while we were on campus or at his apartment, but I did manage to get a few here and there. 
We had fun visiting the BYU campus and we got to hang out with Hayley and Paul, although Paul was not photographed. It was fun to see the kids together, laughing and joking. 

I can't believe Matt is a college student. When I started this blog, he was like 8? And now he's on his own, doing his own laundry, waking himself up, fixing food for himself, not being nagged about doing homework (not that I ever had to nag him very much).

I wish I had gotten a picture of Jerilyn and Beth on my phone when we went to lunch with them. We had limited time, but I did want to see them. It's weird that they, who are from two very different circles in my life, met each other independent of me. Jim was a good sport to put up with lunch with us old hens.

Must see America

Some pictoral highlights from the drive out to Utah when we took Matt to college.

We saved Mt Rushmore for the trip back so there are no pictures of it here. The van was not packed to the gills like with other children's college move, so it was a very comfortable drive.
