Four and a half years ago, we dropped off our adventurous eighteen-year-old and her stuff (that took up about 3/4 of the back of our suburban) at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA. Eight hours from home. No car. Didn’t know a soul.
This weekend we packed up her stuff (our suburban, a u-haul, and another car’s worth!) and drove home. But besides her “stuff” she also brings home with her a diploma, a whole sorority full of friends, and memories to last a lifetime. We are so very, very proud of the young woman she has become. Beautiful inside and out. We’re looking forward to having her at home for a few months until grad school!
