The Backwoods

Where we teeter between our love of modern convenience and the yearning for something long past; a world where neighbors knew your name and a “Friend Request” was eye contact and a smile.

Just Another Scenic Sunday 8/26/2012

Posted · 4 Comments

This week in my life I….

Took Destini to college in Anchorage...and I let her drive the whole way...

Billy did THIS in the backseat the entire five hours...

This is the grizzly bear playing in the river…oh wait…we didn’t get that picture because Destini wouldn’t pull over…##@$@%@# driving Nazi!!!!!

The TomTom kept telling Destini to turn right in 400 feet...but she is a college girl now, so she knew better...

We went shopping at high class stores...

And we bought Destini COLLEGE essentials...

Then, we took her to her last expensive meal for the next 4-6 years...

Then we visited my brothers family and everyone gave Destini much needed grownup advice...

Like, when you go to college, don't forget to bring your POKEMON cards...

And your best friend, PATCH!

 

 

And Billy tried out her shower for her...

Then we moved all of Destini’s stuff into her itsy bitsy dorm…

 

AND THEN WE LEFT…..and it was sad.

    Been there and done that! Moved my boy in 6 hours away last fall – this fall he’s decided to go to the local community college and save money – smart boy.

    Feeling your sadness. Dread that day with Josie but I also know that you have raised your children to be independent and this is truly Destini’s Moment! Wishing her well in college!
