Jordan Goes to SUU

Well, the day finally arrived (not soon enough for Jordan) that he left for college. I was somewhat surprised that we had to wake him up this morning. I thought he would have been up and ready to leave by about 6:00 am, but we finally headed out about 10:30. It was a pleasant drive south. We went the back route to Meadow, Utah where we intersected I-15. It was about a 3 1/2 hour drive. About 15 minutes before we arrived we found out that Jordan didn't know the address for the apartment complex. He got hold of Britney and she looked it up on the internet which was fortunate for us because I would have been looking in the entirely wrong part of Cedar City for the apartment complex.

We found the complex and met the Elder's Quorum President and Counselor while Jordan was checking in at the office. They were going around having the new students fill out a form to give to the Bishop. It looks like it will be a really good ward. They had a fireside tonight, so the EQP took Jordan over to it to introduce him to more of the students in the ward. We talked to him afterwards and he had a really good time. One of his room mates is supposed to arrive tonight. One who was already living in the apartment was in New York, so we didn't get to meet him. We got Jordan all moved into his room. I was surprised that everything he brought down fit in his room. It is a nice apartment setup where each room had a bathroom and shower. Jordan was really excited to be moving into his own apartment. We loaded him up with groceries and then said our goodbyes and headed back to Tooele. We made it home about 8:30 pm. It was a long day which was both exciting and sad for us. It is different realizing that we are down to 2 children at home now. At least with cell phones we can call them all the time (unless they are on a mission and don't have a cell phone).

WOW! I was wondering if he had gone down yet. That is so exciting--and weird! I can't believe you have two college-age children either. I feel bad we never made it up (over?) there to see Jordan before he went, but at least he's not TOO far away. We could drive to Cedar City and totally embarrass him in front of all his roomies--that'd be better anyway. College...fun times! Those were the days.

Oh, I was going to say that not knowing the address of his apartment complex is totally something Sione would do. Details, details...
