The One Where Amy Goes to College!

Oh man has it been a while since I've written!  I have been so busy this past weekend and I'm just now getting time to write...and I better do it fast because I am exhausted!!  So the BIGGEST news this past weekend is that my cousin Amy moved in to college!!!  I have lots of pictures so I'll show them along the way!  

Friday night, my family and I went out to Firebird's, a nice restaurant down the street, for Amy's last meal at home.  It was so good!  I asked the waiter to take a picture of us and he happily obliged!  

*From left to right: Uncle Mike, Aunt Diane, Amy, Tyler, me, and my mom!*

We woke up bright and early Saturday morning (we were on the road by 7:30am!!) to hit the road to school!  Amy and Tyler rode with me and my mom because her car was completely full of stuff!!  Here are some pictures of all of us on the road!

*This is an awful picture of the photographer*

*Here is mom driving the car*

*Amy and Tyler all cuddly in the backseat:)*

*Aunt Diane and Uncle Mike in the next car!*

When we finally arrived, we had to unload both cars onto the sidewalk and then go park the cars a mile away! (Well it seemed like a mile...)  You would not believe the piles of stuff all these kids had!  Even the boys brought a lot of stuff!

*Amy's pile!*

Amy is rooming with one of her friends from high school, so they already knew each other and the families got along great- which is a good thing because there were 11 of us a teeny tiny dorm room!  Oh it was definitely crowded...but the finished product looked awesome:)  She's pretty pleased with it!  Not to mention that just outside her dorm is the football stadium, and on the other side of the dorm is the baseball field!  Talk about lucky:)

*Amy lofted her bed and Hope cornered hers right under Amy's!*

*Amy found a cute place to put her picture frames, fridge, and microwave*

*I loved her desk area:) *

We left around 7:00pm and didn't get home until about 10:15ish.  We were all so tired, but so glad to have gotten Amy all moved in.  She starts tomorrow so keep her in your prayers!

Aside from that just a few things:  
1) When we got home Saturday night, I spilled astringent aaalllll over my phone.  Joyous way to end a day I think!  It quit working.  I got a new one.
2) I start school on Wednesday and I am soooo nervous.  Why?  It's not like I just finished 4 years of school and graduated or anything....
3) Happy Birthday, mom!  I love you!
