Boston: The eagle has landed.

And he's ready to be a college freshman!
We arrived on campus Wednesday.
The setting is breath-taking.
He visited the ROTC building,
became acquainted with the cougar
and established his new home base.the view from his dorm window, with the football stadium in the backgroundhe's making plans to "hike the Y"and he's got his all-sports pass, so he'll be visiting this place a few times this fall.

I loooooooved my years at BYU. My wonderful brother-in-law just started as a freshman, and it makes me warm and happy inside.

I'm sure your son will have a great freshman year.

Becky said...

We are HAPPY for him...but we will MISS him. :(

HOW DID YOU DO????

Good for Roger! I have no doubt the entire floor will be Red Sox fans by end of this month notwithstanding wailing and gnashing of teeth:-)

As Capt. Moroni said, 'some things must be enforced by the point of the sword.' [Book of Michael's interpretations page 1 paragraph 1]

Tell him if he ever gets tired of seeing blue, there is an awesome school about 45 minutes away on a hill in SLC that is true red!

GO UTES!!

(Enjoy school R!)

Amazing! Pretty neat Jenny -- what an important rite of passage for him and you!

C is just a stone's throw away from R at Canyon Terrace. Imagine!!! Trust me, the empty feeling in your heart gets a bit easier to deal with over time.

Ah yes he is here and we are so glad to have him near by and spend some time with him. Had him over for dinner last night and the boys were all fighting over who got to sit by him...E won!

Fun pictures! Love that place. Still remember our first year, and taking everything in. Love the fall weather, beautiful grounds and buildings, pure heaven on earth. Good food to boot ;-)

I'm sure he'll have a wonderful experience, and to have an aunt and uncle there as well is great. How did you do?

Ahhh, Roger in college. Its bringing me back. Zach and I have only been gone from Provo for 3 years and I'm sure if he had his way we would be headed back there pretty soon.
