BYU Idaho here she comes!

Laura's wish has come true. She was accepted to her #1 pick, BYU Idaho!!!  Since she was 8 or 9 years old, she has dreamed of one day going to BYU Idaho. In her mind, it was the BYU in the country, and for our 'Country Girl,' that was and is just about perfect. When Laura turned 12, we took a road trip and one of the places that we HAD to stop was BYU Idaho. Laura wanted to walk the campus to 'get a feel' for where she would attend college. We took her to the school bookstore  to buy her first BYU Idaho sweatshirt.

Here is a picture of her on the BYU Idaho campus, just before buying her infamous sweatshirt in 2008 

That baby blue sweatshirt has become the cornerstone of her casual wear. She has worn it literally...everywhere. It has traveled with her to Mexico, Turkey, France, Italy, Florida, California, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, England, The Nederlands and everywhere in between.

Her sweatshirt, 5 years later. She still wears it. :)

Congratulations, Laura, on being accepted to BYU Idaho. I guess you will need to buy a new sweatshirt now and one for your Dad and Mom! We love you and couldn't be prouder of you.

Happy happy thoughts are going your way. And your way is soon going to be a lot closer -- right here on not only the same continent, and not only in the same country, but in the good ol' West! Hope you're bringing your boots...
