**She's OFF...Moving & Dorms & Bears...OH MY**


Today has come TOO entirely fast...
just 18 years ago I was getting this cute little girl ready
for kindergarten....
& now?
Here she goes......
Moving into Baylor today......

she's off on her new adventure:

and we're right behind her...100 %

we love her and couldn't be any prouder...

So go girl...enjoy your new journey...

and remember....home is always close by. a phone call, a visit, whatever...
my favorite noise from this day forward is going to be YOUR garage door opener
opening the door ....
love you Princess!
Mom, Dad & Shaypher
(and the furboys too...)

Oh what a tough time Mom....I remember these days as if there were just yesterday....I was so excited for Danielle to go off to college and so sad for me!!!!! But when I saw her growing into this independent...smart....strong woman...I knew it was worth every bit of my aching for her to stay home!!!!! Your beautiful daughter has learned much from her beautiful mother and will just flourish!!!! Best wishes to the entire family!!!! Go BAYLOR!!!
