"Sons are a heritage from The Lord, children a reward from Him" Psalms 127:3
The time had come to take Little John to Northern Arizona University, this day seemed so far off, for so long, then all of a sudden here it was! John and I took John to Arizona, leaving the little girls in their auntie and uncles care. I wanted this time to be focused on Little John, to set his dorm up, and make him feel comfortable in his new environment.
Before we left to Arizona we printed off a list a mile long of what he would need for college, Ikea checked a lot of his dorm items off the list.
A couple days before he left we went to Lego Land with some friends, I was all packed up ready to go out the door with the little girls when he said hey I want to go! I knew normally he wouldn't want to go but during the last week, he made a effort to stay home and spend as much time with us.
So we arrived in Flagstaff, wow what a amazing place! A hidden jewel in Arizona, everyone kept saying it's going to be so hot there. Nope Flagstaff is in the mountains, with thee most amazing sky I've ever seen! Huge clouds would roll in and rain would pour then just like that blue sunny sky again.
Getting settled in, he was first in his room so got to choose the best spot.
About 20 miles outside of Flagstaff there was a sign to Sedona, I've never been so he decided on the spot sure lets check it out.... Rounded a corner and OMG!!! Those red mountains took my breath away! I'm like my dad when I appreciate something, I can't get over it, John was laughing cause I kept saying oh my gosh! It's so beautiful. Very spiritual there, the Native Americans have lived here for thousands of years, their presents is everywhere.
All four kids are back in school. I'm enjoying the house quiet again, I schedule my clients while girls are in school, try to squeeze in a workout, cleaning, laundry, and meal prep. I call Little John at least once a day, and a few texts. Miss him so much, but life does go on, and I have a few visits already planned so that helps! Alright time to get going, Love you
