And then there were 4...

This past week our 18 year old returned from Germany and then loaded up the next morning to leave for college. We made the 2 1/2 hour drive to the beautiful pines and cool weather of Flagstaff.Here she is checking in at her dorm...
And here's the before of her room...
We were super impressed with the room. Although not very big, her dorm was remodeled over the summer and was outfitted with new furniture and carpet. After a few measurements and a big trip to Target, here's the after...
Here's the other half...
It was a bit of a challenge to fit all of her things in an armoire, but she's talented like that.
She started classes on Monday and it sounds like she's already settling in. We're so proud of her accomplishments (full tuition scholarship, NAU honors program, Fluent Spanish speaker, & World traveler) but we will miss seeing her everyday.
With one daughter married and one away at school- we're down to four! How quickly they grow up! Love, Kelly
