Getting Ready for College

This coming Sunday we take our daughter, Joy, down to Liberty University for her Junior year as an Elementary Education major. She has to be down early due to her being a Resident Assistant. One week from Tuesday we will head back to Liberty to take our son, Jonathan, down for his freshman year as a Worship Arts major. Yesterday I took my day off for the week and we headed out as a family to get all of the final college supplies for both kids (except for all of the stuff we will need to get them down in Lynchburg when we get there).

Do you realize how many stores it took us to get all of these "last minute" supplies? We went to all of the following places of business (and I've probably missed a few):

Office Max (the night before)

Cyber Mart (the night before)

Perkins (for breakfast)

Van Heusen



Pets Mart (OK - that wasn't for the kids)


Starbucks (needed some refreshment)

Dollar Tree

Staples (out on 30)

Wal Mart (out on 30)

Sharp Shopper

Staples (on 501)

AC Moore

JC Penney

Pearle Vision

Olive Garden (used a gift card for an early dinner)

Wal Mart (Fruitville Pike)



Watch out Lynchburg, Virginia - here come the Distlers!
