Packing Kassie Up









Oh the time that all parents dread ... packing up one of your kids and sending them off to live on their own! I can't even explain the feeling of loss you feel when someone you love so much is leaving. You just hope they will be safe and watched over when you are not there to do it yourself.
After finally getting everything boxed up ... and wondering how we were ever going to fit everything in, to haul it up to Rexburg ... we had a moment to relax and of course ... take some pictures. Anyone who truly knows Kassie can tell how she is feeling by looking in her eyes in these photographs. She is so nervous to be taking this next step in her life but excited for the experience as well. She is just feeling so many emotions all turning around inside her.

Tomorrow we head to Idaho. We will miss her so much but we are so excited to see her grow and become even stronger and better than she already is. Thank goodness for cell phones!
