Katelyn's all moved in











We got Katelyn all moved in! I thought Dave should come along to help because she had so much packed. I was wrong. We drove in and there were all kinds of upper classmen there to carry all her stuff. Dave carried in her printer and I carried in my camera and her water. They plan this for the freshmen. It was great. Her roommate wasn't there yet so she unpacked. When Liz arrived they decided to bunk their beds, so in come about 3 other students to take care of that for us. They ended up not having any suite mates so to their "horrible disappointment" they have the bathroom all to themselves. Around 11:30, we all (liz & her parents) headed for lunch - chicken parmesan, mashed potatoes, lasagna, carrots, rice, rolls and cheesecake. (No wonder kids gain weight their first year in college!) Then we went to a dedication ceremony at the chapel. Later on there was an orientation type of meeting. Katelyn had to go to a technology meeting at 3:00 where they get all information for their computers. They're pretty much set up in their room except for some final adjustments. Last night, everyone was going to a baseball game. Today she has to take some freshman tests and then they will be having a campus "Meijer" run for anything that has been forgotten. Sunday, they will be having campus worship
Monday is a fun fest for all and Tuesday, classes start. She will be coming home next Friday. Here's some pictures of the day. I've got some of all her stuff packed, students helping, her dorm and room, their community kitchen, Liz & her, and me with her. I think she's off to a great start!
