Yep, Devon actually moved down to San Diego yesterday.  Her dad and I moved her in to her dorm room at UCSD.  Happy, proud, excited, sad…all hit me at the same time.

Here she is saying goodbye to the dog and heading out…

Time to go


We actually managed to get everything in my little CRV, plus the three of us. 

The car is packed


Checking in at her college, Eleanor Roosevelt –

checking in


UCSD is kind of cool in that it’s a huge university (over 25,000 students), but it’s also made up of six smaller colleges.  She’s part of Eleanore Roosevelt College.  They have their own area of the school and several dorm buildings.  She’s in Asia Hall.  It’s pretty interesting.

Here’s her room before, and with one of her 15 suite mates Crystal (center) and her roommate Janine (right).

Home sweet dorm


And then it got crazy and a little rushed.  It was late afternoon and they all wanted to go to dinner at 5:30, so I forgot to take any more pictures.  Can you believe it.  So I sent her a text when I got home, and then she e-mailed me this picture.

This morning I woke up too early and of course I haven’t stopped thinking about her yet!  I admit I moped around the house a lot this morning.  Thank goodness I’m working at the store today with Allie.  Marcie has a class, and that should all help me keep from being too sad for a while.  I’m so happy for her, but also a little worried (as I’m sure all mothers are in this situation) and will be a little anxious until I know she’s settled in and familiar with her new surroundings.

Thanks for listening…Barbara

(For those who don’t know us, she’s my only child…)
