Taylor's Graduation!

We are so proud of her!

Taylor graduated last Saturday, the 14th of May from Hendrix College.
She received a BA in Environmental Studies with Distinction.
It was a hectic couple of days.

We reserved a UHaul to be picked up Friday morning in Conway.
We got a call from a location about 25 miles away from there Thursday, while we were driving the 9 hours it takes for us to get there.
The trailer we were supposed to pick up had been stolen from their lot.
It was graduation weekend, and trailers were not to be found.
We had to get all of this back to Texas, and Plan A was to leave after graduation on Saturday.

We had to pack all of this on Friday.

We were very lucky.
Eddie, at the Maumelle Uhaul went above and beyond for us.
He went to someone's home to get a trailer for us.
He was wonderful and saved the day.
So, after graduation, we hit the road.

It was a great ride home.
Lots of good music and conversation.
Taylor and I drove the Honda.
Marc drove the truck and was happy to listen to whatever games were on the radio.
The Queen Anne's Lace was blooming from Little Rock to Dallas.

We'll miss visiting Hendrix. Taylor had a great 4 years there, and Arkansas is a beautiful state.
                                          What we saw of it reminded us of New England.

                                                 Taylor's back home now, job hunting.

More on what's going on with her cottage soon!
She's been busy.
