I can’t believe it’s been a week since I’ve posted. It was definitely a busy week for this mom. Wednesday was moving day for our youngest daughter and I had a lot to do getting Mallory ready to leave home. There was shopping for the last minute things, laundry and sitting on my flabby fanny watching her pack. We left around noon on Wednesday to take her to college, and her check-in time was between 3:00 and 5:00. Luckily, there were a couple of boys helping to carry stuff up to the dorm rooms, and by the time Lance and I got our cars parked, they had most of the stuff carried up. It took us just a couple of hours to arrange the room and put things away.

Mallory just has a way with looks sometimes, and this is one I often get — what is a mother to do but take pictures!

The Look

Kate went along and her main job for the day was getting the laptop online and ready to go for her computer-challenged sister.


Just before we left to go have dinner together one last time, I was able to get the girls together one last time for the day.

Needless to say, I’ve already had a few calls and emails about things she would like to have that we forgot. So I have a shopping list together and ready to run some errands in the morning. I’m working on her first care package, and needed to make a card to send along. See there is some stamping in this post! Mallory loves the little penguins from Inky Antics, and I never had a chance to make a card with any of them before she left, so here’s the card that I’m going to send along with her package. I hope she gets a kick out of it!
