College Girl!

Today is the day that marks Sarah’s first day of college!  Unfortunately I am in Greenville for my infusion (in fact I’m hooked up right now) so Steve was the one to drop her off at 9 a.m.  I’ve since heard back from them and her first class went great.

(Note: For Sarah’s first day of college today, she will work eight hours and then come home to do an online course. I figured I would wait to take her actual First Day of College Picture tomorrow because that’s when she will attend her first official college class.)

And now on to the last post from the Great Charleston/Florida Excursion of 2014 . .  .

I have one more post from the Charleston/Florida trip coming but for today, I want to write on a different topic.) 

It’s almost time for another changing of the seasons in the Smith house as Sarah will be starting college this coming Monday.


Did I just type “Sarah” and “college” in the same sentence? Tell me it ain’t so!

And also mostly about Noah. (Since I am, after all, a grandma.)

We have 807 miles to cover today so I’m not able to post a very long entry. This post is actually being done on my phone and I’m finding that it’s a complicated business compiling a post on an iPhone. But it’s fun trying to figure it out.

We are currently (albeit temporarily) enjoying life as Floridians. Happy day!

On our trip here we stopped off in Charleston, SC for a little bit of sightseeing.  Although the weather report forecast a 70% chance of rain we only got a few sprinkles here and there and weren’t hampered too much by the overcast weather.

First thing tomorrow morning, we’re hitting the road for points south–Charleston, SC first and then on to Florida. In the meantime, I am realizing just how much my house needs to be cleaned. 

Now if you’re wondering why a road trip would make me see my need to clean, it’s because whenever we take an extended trip, we open our home to a pastor or missionary family while we’re gone. With the high price of lodging on the Outer Banks, some families just can’t afford to vacation here so it’s a nice little thing we can do to bless someone else.
