dave. college. 2nd year.

yesterday was moving back to college day for dave. he’s part of the growth group leadership team at grace this year so he had to get there a few days before freshman welcome weekend.

7:30 AM {that’s right people, i was up and looking alive at 7:30am….hard to believe right?} we were loaded up and ready to leave the house. see the bundled up burrito looking thingy on the top of my jeep? that is the little blue couch that cindy and bud so graciously gave to dave for his dorm room. i personally think it was a way for cindy to beg bud for a new couch for their room…but that’s just me. 🙂

i still can’t lift anything over 10 pounds so i wasn’t much help moving things up 2 flights of stairs, so dave let me do one more “mom thing” for him. i put away all his clothes. all nice and tidy and folded and hung and lookin’ all neat like they were here at home. now OKAY! i know it’s not going to stay this way! i had fun doing it for him though. felt needed. and all that jazz.

these vintage mailboxes are so cool. had to grab a photo of dave’s box. hint….he likes gum and coffee beans if youwant to fill his vintage mailbox with something from home. 🙂

i miss him. alot. but it’s all good. knowing he is in the place he loves, surrounded by people he loves, doing the things he loves to do, makes all the missing okay for me. not “JUST okay”. it makes it right and GOOD for me. i wouldn’t want it any other way for him. truly.

  1. thanks for sharing those pictures carrie. dave truly looks happy and it has to make it a little easier (well, maybe EASY isn’t the word….but you know what i mean) for you to know that he is exactly where God wants him and is so in tune to following God’s leading in his life. he is a wonderful christian guy!
