As I mentioned to you previously, Thursday night was the night that Audrey left us and moved into her dorm. The first thing she had to do to prepare was to clean and organize her room, which previously had been declared a national disaster area and qualified for FEMA funds (we didn't take them). The cleanup required Jennifer's help, took a whole week, and generated at least a dozen trash bags full of trash.
But by the time Thursday evening rolled around, the room was spic and span...
...and the stuff for her dorm room was all packed.
The other kids tearfully said goodbye to Audrey. Christine even helped close her car door!
And, she was off (with me following behind in the van)!
Of course, we had to stand in the obligatory line to get her key. Thankfully, the line wasn't very long.
Once we got her key, we proceeded to her dorm, an imposing structure indeed.
Look how excited she is to march through the door!
On each of the new students' doors was a sign with the name of each resident, and a Peanuts character. Now how did they know that Audrey is like Lucy? Hmmm...

Moving Out and Moving In
Audrey and me at an Astros game in July. For you baseball fans out there, that's Lance Berkman, Miguel Tejada, and Michael Bourne on the field doing their warmups.
