. . . back to school . . .

. . . used to be the happiest day of the year! . . .
. . . these days ~ it's a little different . . .
. . . early this morning . . .
. . . drew was gone in a blur . . .
. . . literally . . .
. . . he couldn't even hold still
long enough for a picture . . .
. . . behold . . .
. . . this is how a boy loads up his car . . .
. . . for the ten-hour drive to his new home . . .
. . . well ~ for the next four months anyway . . .
. . . leaving empty spaces . . .
. . . and "treasures" . . .
. . . and a couple of items that didn't make the cut . . .
. . . and just like that . . .
. . . at 5:59 a.m. . . .
. . . he was going . . .
. . . going . . .
. . . gone . . .
{why can't byu be in mesa?}

ahhh. I feel like crying. How do you feel?
Here's the good news... you can actually TALK to him whenever you want. (not only twice a flipping year).
Good luck Drewski!

Wish BYU and the University of Washington were both in Mesa. I hate goodbyes. Mine was a couple of weeks ago. Condolences. That's what you get for being a great mom and teaching your kids independence! :-)

chris+amber said...

i agree...i finished school & graduated from byu if it had been in mesa! why does idaho get to have one? we need one here!

chris+amber said...

i forgot to add "probably could have" in between "i" and "finished". i promise i have proper grammar. got sidetracked by the taggster mid-sentence.
