Gratefully Overwhelmed, Part 2: Photos!

Last week’s post was all about being grateful–and a mite overwhelmed–for the big transition to college we were helping our daughter make, as well as for the wonderful opportunity to host a student from Japan for a week–the same week.

This week, I will let pictures tell the story. Schedules got juggled, boxes and suitcases got moved from place to place, and lots of smiles and happiness got spread around. We hope that our exchange student had as much fun as we did, despite the incredibly rainy weather we had!

We’d do it again in a minute! As far as taking a daughter to college, it’s hard to feel too sad when she looks SO HAPPY!
