Ally Moves Into College

UNH or was a tough day...emotionally...physically...and it didn't help that when we finally got to her dorm (after over an hour) she was told that her dorm had changed.  We then had to drive to the other side of campus and wait in another line for about another hour...BUT we got through it...she is all moved in and she has settled down.  She was scared and sad but she just posted on facebook..."settling in...maybe this isn't as bad as I thought"...too cute...brings back very similar memories!

This is what she looked like first thing this morning
This is the care package I put together for her...all of her essentials...Daddy's homemade salsa, tostitos, cheezeits...Febreeze...puffs of our family....snacks snacks snacks...perfume, etc etc....
Rob was high strung all day...I realized today after being together for about 10 years that he gets high strung and snippy when he is stressed...can't believe it took me this long to figure that out?
after a pretty hour long drive, we arrived on campus and I made a bee line for the library to pee!  After that, I snapped a few pics of the beautiful buildings while we waited in one of the first of many lines today

and then after the first dorm...the drive across campus and the next 1 hour line, we arrive at "Stoke Hall"...her final destination...seems like a fun dorm!
We unpacked and took some fun shots...then we kissed her and said our goodbyes...her Mom stayed to have lunch with her and make sure she was okay...I cried a little in the car on the way home...tonight, I just have a pit in my stomach...the house already feels so empty and our family dynamic has already changed...didn't think it would be this tough :(

and Ally got a sweet roommate...Julia :) Have fun girls!
