madimovingday




This momentous day is here, the last baby bird flees the nest next door…

As Madison pulls out of the driveway, her life will pass before her mom's eyes. All those years, the four little ones playing together, or fighting, time spent in the car or in the kitchen or camping or watching television, the Christmas cookie baking, the empty peanut butter jars, the braces, cross-country, cheerleading, piano lessons, soccer games, chorus, the Halloween costumes, the laughs, the tears, sleepovers, birthday cakes, the mean girls, the prom dresses, the packing for college, the life…

All of that is in the past now, those old juvenile memories, all PC (pre-college). On to make new memories, new friends. On to the next step. BamaBound is not just a college destination, it is a life-changing event! Go Crimson Tide! Hello Big AL! Roll Tide! 

After all the prep and waiting and anticipation, it is finally time and Madison is more than ready. Time to put LIJ in her rearview mirror. Time to spread her wings. There are places to go and people to meet and adventures to be had. Look out world!

all my bags are packed I'm ready to go...

Just don't forget where you came from, your roots started in Georgia coastal sand and are now deeply embedded in Georgia mountain red clay. A Georgia Peach, a Southern girl through and through. Know that we are all very proud of you and are looking forward to hearing all about college, so if you have any spare time maybe post something on social media occasionally for us folks who are waiting to hear. There are these new things out there like Facebook and Twitter that you might want to check out to connect and keep in touch :)

I tried to think of some advice but you already do and know everything just right, so just keep on... follow your arrow wherever it points :)



The family trailer is loaded, along with 2 cars full, move over traffic, this caravan is Bama Bound!

#madimovingday is here

Sophie says RTR could be Roll Tide Roll but 'round here it is roll tears roll...
