A New "W" Girl
(guess we should have cleared off the bed for a prettier picture; wall needs pics as well)
Another chapter in the life of Madeleine has begun. On Saturday morning at approx 8am CDT, we embarked on a journey to Mississippi. With Mom, Dad, Theresa and John in the lead car and Madeleine following behind in her Ford Focus with James we took a 3 hour drive (hear the music but really it's more like 3.5 hrs). Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Carlee (her admissions counselor) and Madeleine's belongings were quickly carried to just outside Room 109 in Grossnickle Hall. In a short time, furniture was rearranged, boxes were unpacked, and forgotten items were purchased at Walmart. College President Limbert even stopped by to say hello; don't think that happens at big universities. Then it was a return voyage to Alabama minus Madeleine who will begin her college career at Mississippi University for Women (possibly to be known as Reneau University in the future).
(outside her new residence for the next two years)
PS: I didn't mention Abigail because she was busy being a Royal Dancer in the King and I so she was unable to come for the bon voyage caravan.
