Heading off to School

We spent a lot of time last week shopping and packing and getting Parker ready for college.  Everyone helped including the fur babies. And Parker picked his last dinner out at home to be at Daiquiri Deck on the Key which was fun. 

Parker's checkin time on Saturday at Florida Southern was 2pm. We pulled up in a loop, and some upperclassmen unloaded our car into a cart pulled by a golf cart. Daryl and Parker headed off in the golf cart to the dorm while I parked the car and walked over to Allan Spivey Hall. It took us about 90 minutes to get Parker all set up and organized and wow does he have a lovely spacious corner room with tons of natural light! 

Daryl left just after this picture to go get the younger boys from Seffner and head home. I got to stay for the parent meeting with the FSC president. Afterwards, I headed over to the Hills house in Auburndale. Amy and I went to Disney and got Dole Whip floats while shopping at the Springs. 

Sunday morning I met Parker on campus for chapel which was great and then we went to lunch in the dining hall. Afterwards we went to convocation in Branscomb Auditiorium (where we usually have annual conference). All the freshmen students marched in and the faculty were on the stage. I sat with our friends the Standifers from Fruitland Park - they have two daughters here. And then we walked out onto the field behind Parker's dorm while they got their class photo taken on the lawn. 

I finished up my Sunday with the Hills again in Auburndale. CJ made dinner and then I watched Disney movies and played board games with the kids (and the dog!) while he and Amy went on a Disney date.
