GEAUX BRYCE!

Today was a big day for our family!  I haven't even posted back to school pics of the other 4 kiddos but I just had to post these today.  It's official!  Bryce is a college student and now lives on campus!
 
I was a little concerned that I would boo hoo, but the truth is...I'm just so excited for him that I can't be sad!  (not to mention, he's only 30 minutes away!)  He moved in a few days early to start band camp this afternoon!  We will know in a few days whether he will be a part of the marching Tiger Band!


 
Boys are SO easy!  We saw all kinds of girl accessories being moved in today.  Truth is, Bryce never even saw his bedding until we unpacked it today :)  He couldn't care less.  And he's not bothered one bit that there are no matching curtains! lol...


I was also a little concerned that the girls would fall apart when we left him there.  They have been dreading this day, but they rallied to the occasion and were just fine.






Anyone who knows Bryce, will think this is hysterical.  He has always loved tents, secret rooms and hiding places.  I wouldn't be surprised at all if he spends some of his time down there!  lol...


Saying goodbye.  She said this morning that she had a plan .  It was to hide and stay at college with Bryce.  At dinner the other night she actually said "Oh..NO... you go...I go!"  lol...

Bryce promised the girls that he would let them sleep with him one night before he left.  Last night was that night.  He had something on campus and when his friends asked him to stay after, he told them, "This is going to sound very wrong, but I have to home and sleep with my sisters".  When they questioned him, he told them "because I promised they could sleep with me before I move and they're 6."  When he got home, he carried 2 sleeping girls upstairs to his room and ended up sleeping on the floor because they took up the whole bed.  I just don't know many brothers who would do that.  What a blessing he is to us.  I am so proud of him and can't wait to see what the future holds.  And I certainly can't wait to see him march down that hill in his band uniform playing "Geaux Tigers!!"
 
GEAUX BRYCE!!!

Bryce, I have felt a pang in my heart for weeks over this day, but, seeing the pictures, and feeling your excitement I can honestly say that I am so proud and so happy for you! You have promised me that you won't forget your old grandma! I have complete confidence in you that you will thrive and absolute confidence that the Lord's presence goes with you! Remember all the forts and tents we built? - I love that picture of you and the girls under the bed!

I love you and can't wait to see what God does in this next act of your life! MawMaw

I cried when I read about him going home to sleep with his sisters. That is just like my boys! So sweet! I hope he has a great college experience. Will is looking VERY far away. I doubt I will be as strong as you. I know I'll boo hoo! Hugs.

We're going to make it down for a game this year. Can't wait to hear him/them play!! You should be so proud. That's big time!!! :)

We too just left our son at college today. Such a bittersweet feeling. Will miss them but also happy for them all at the same time. I know my Carissa will miss her big brother in due time. She still thinks she is going to get his bigger room. He is three hours away. It is an easy drive so not too bad of a trip. On to newer and bigger adventures for our families.
