I saw this bumper sticker on a car when we were dropping off Will at Texas Christian University, home of the Horned Frogs. I thought it was so funny!
Saying good-bye to his sister. Not happy that Mom has already pulled out the camera on her phone!
Arrival at TCU in Fort Worth. They had an impressively organized system for checking in new students, handing out room keys and ID's and assisting with unloading cars
I took this picture of the student center and, lo and behold, I captured Will and Robert returning with his room key and a pass to let us into the driveway by Will's dorm for 15 minutes
The University provided these laundry bins and a lot of upperclass volunteers to assist with moving things from cars to the dorm. Robert, Will and a volunteer got all of Will's things to his room in one trip while I parked the car
Will checking out his new bed (his bedding, that I ordered from The Company Store over a month ago, shipped on the 11th but has not arrived yet - grrr). Will has two nice roommates from Tulsa, Oklahoma and Newport Beach, California
"Ok, Mom, you made my bed and took my picture. You and Dad can go now..."
We met Will's roommate from Tulsa. He was very polite and personable. The roommate from California arrived after we'd left, but Will texted me that he is "really nice"
Posing with mom by his desk. I gave Texas flags for graduation presents last year, thinking boys might like to hang them in their dorm rooms. The roommate brought the nice TV, prompting Will to request that I send his XBox and games with a friend coming to TCU later in the week
One last picture with the 'rents. My phone is on Will's bed because he thought one picture with Dad's phone was sufficient. "He can email it to you, Mom."
Will's freshman dorm at TCU - doesn't it look amazingly calm for move-in day?
I cried on the way home. Can't believe my boy is old enough to go to college...

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
