After dropping Andrew off at college, Susan and I got to spend a couple of days in Colorado. We moved to Idaho Springs and hike to St. Mary’s Glacier on Thursday and then Mt. Flora on Friday.
Today we (just Susan and I!) took Andrew to college! He will be attending Regis University in Denver. We left Des Moines yesterday around lunch time. It was a rough, emotional departure because the Reagen kids and our kids were all present to say goodbye. There were many tears and rumor has it that after we left everyone just sat in the living room for a while. We have had a great run here in Des Moines, raising our kids with the Reagens, and with Andrew and Ian headed to college it feels like a seismic shift.
Yesterday we drove to Denver and today we were up early for a hike and then took Andrew to get moved in. We got him settled into his room, met his roommate, and then said our goodbyes. He was really excited to start getting settled in on his own. That is about right.
I got these awesome glasses to help with my motion sickness.
Today we went swimming again at Holly’s pool and then went to a very hot Reds game at night for Fireworks Friday.
Yesterday we drove from St. Augustine to Cincinnati. Not much to say about the trip, except I had motion sickness and we had to stop in a Walmart parking lot in Knoxville, Tennessee, so I could rest for a bit and we could get some medicine.
