Well, it has been 3 weeks since we bid Miss Molly good-bye and left her 2000 miles away to launch into adulthood…
And she has taken flight beautifully.
She is loving college life, loving Idaho, loving her roommates, classes, and the multitude of college activities offered at BYU-I. As parents we couldn’t be happier to see her so happy. She is thriving in every sense of the word. Here are some photos of our sweet girl and her Idaho adventures:
The first Sunday in Idaho as Molly and her roommates head off to church.
While Molly was working at the tutoring center a kind lady was handing out cookies. It made her day!
Molly has been blessed with eight awesome roommates. Katrina, a fellow freshman at the house, is Molly’s closest friend.
Molly has enjoyed documenting her Idaho adventures with beautiful photos and thoughtful reflection on her Instagram account: tripping_over_gods_blessings.
While grocery shopping, the girls decided the house needed a house “pet.” They brought home this flora mascot instead.
Molly has loved living so close to a temple…something that is a rare treat when you were raised on the east coast. Determined to soak up the sweet spirit so readily accessible, she has set a goal of visiting the temple three times a week.

The beauty found in the ordinary…as seen through Molly’s lens.
Molly at I-night…the weekend of social and service activities for the new freshman.
Enjoying the social side of college life.

One night Molly and her roommates bonded over hair dye as they all colored each others hair. Here is Molly’s new look.
One week until we get Molly home for the wedding festivities. It is wonderful to see her doing so well in Idaho, but I’m looking forward to loving on her in person!
