A New Era has Dawned

Today we packed up the car, said our goodbyes....

and drove our baby to JMU for his freshman year of college.

We helped him get settled into his room...

and we laughed when we realized that Spence and his roommate, Anhthy, (who he has been friends with since elementary school) will have to be pretty careful when they leave for campus each day as  their backpacks literally are the exact same brand, size, and color.  

Then we went on one more shopping trip (without Spencer) for a few forgotten items (a laundry basket, trash can, and some school supplies) and met him for a very brief few minutes to pass off the supplies before he headed off to another freshman orientation activity.  

After that we quickly said our goodbyes one last time... 
 and  drove away with an empty space in our car.

So excited for Spencer! I remember how awesome it felt to go away to school for the first time. I don't know how awesome it will feel when my oldest does the same thing. I imagine your heart is tender right now. Best wishes for you and your great family. I know Spencer will touch many people. He's such a great young man.
