Project 365 - August 21, 2009

This is the Day

So the day finally came that we were moving Rachel into the dorm. This was the day that she would be sleeping there too. This was it. It was really here. And, I was okay with it.

Here we are helping Rachel move the bed up as high as the window ledge and then put on all of the new bedding that we bought at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Notice all of the other boxes all of "stuff" all over the floor! It really didn't take too long to organize with all four of use working. It also helped that her roommate wasn't there quite yet.

Nice view out the window!! That is the courthouse that was built in 1890 or so. This faces west so she will also see sunsets!

We were hungry so we went over to the Clabber Girl Museum and Restaurant on Wabash Avenue. Clabber Girl is baking powder that is manufactured in Terre Haute. Look at the cans at the supermarket, it should say Terre Haute on the label. The girls were being very silly at the museum and I had to encourage them to pose for this shot. They were not entirely pleased with me, but what the heck, I like the photo.

Later in the evening we went to a fund raising event for ISU with our friends. The event was held at the football field to show off their newly renovated locker rooms and football field. It really was done very nicely. This is a photo of Adina way, way up at the top of the bleachers.

And this is the end result of our hard work on Rachel's dorm. It looks cozy to me!
