It was such a bittersweet day. We got Jenna all moved into her new dorm - and she got one of the best on campus, one of the few with air conditioning! As we looked out at the other dorms around her with fans in the window and temps in the 90's and horrid humidity, I was so glad she had this one! The kids we passed from the other ones were just like wet noodles! Her dorm was the first of the dorms to be renovated. So furniture, paint, carpet and air are all new this fall. Any way - I sidetracked - we got her all moved in and met one of her 2 roommates. She shoved us out the door ready to begin college. Course as a mom I hated to leave! I wanted to partake in all the new fun! But Mark pulled me into the car and off we went 6 hours home. She didn't seem sad at all that I was leaving, and swore she would not miss me. Holly says to wait - once she has to start doing everything herself she will miss me! Was that cool of her to say! I miss Holly too!
So the only bright spot of our trip home was I made Mark stop at that really cool rest area dedicated to the underground railroad! This time I took pics on my phone! So here are a few pictures of it. I'll share more tomorrow.
Top picture is to the left of the entrance, Quilt blocks in the side of the outer wall. And below that picture is the right. A closeup of one of the outer wall quilt blocks. And in the entrance way to the rest area are quilt blocks with their names in the tile floor! More pics tomorrow......
