Photos of Richmond
Well, I have not been on xanga as much as I would like to be. That will change this week as life settles back down. My husband put up some pictures from our visit to my oldest son at University of Richmond. Thought I would share a few with you.
We were taken by the chapel on campus. I was thrilled to find my son attends services even when we are not there to prod him- Praise God. Here I am looking at the stained glass windows.
Because it was Univ. of Richmond and their mascot is a spider, one of the windows has a spider on it.
Here is the complete window – you can see the spider on the lowest right corner
While I really wanted to spend all my time with my son, I sent my other two children off with him to attend classes. I wanted them to get a feeling of what college was like. God honored that plan and my next to go off to college sees himself as able.
Christopher, the freshman at U of R standing with books, and Edward sitting next to me, with my daughter Katherine on the other bench.
Here they are going off to classes.
One evening they had a pep rally and Jim got them to pose with the school mascot, Spidey.
But, before they did that, Edward (red shirt) was telling us “NO WAY!!!” One mom was sitting at the table and asked the boys if they would not mind posing with some cheerleaders, the boys agreed. She was the mom of one of the cheerleaders, so she sent over a few, here is a proud moment for Christopher and Edward.
We also went to Virginia beach with the children to give them some fun. After swimming in the ocean and watching the King Neptune Parade we went to a local restaurant. I think this is one of my favorite pictures, for they were having so much fun with each other.
I miss Christopher, but am glad he is happy at college. I pray that next year we find the perfect fit for Edward, and in two years Katherine both of whom are still in high school, living at home. The years go by so quickly.
Hoping you have a blessed day!
