Lawyer-in-the-Works flies the coup

A very new chapter has entered our lives. One of the kids is living in a different state, and there's a very good chance she won't be coming back to Utah to live again. Wild times! It's hard to believe that it's been over four years since I met Lawyer-in-the-Works, Drama Queen, and Game Boy.

Time flies on wings of lightning;
We cannot call it back.
It comes, then passes forward
Along its onward track.
And if we are not mindful,
The chance will fade away,
For life is quick in passing,
'Tis as a single day.
(Improve the Shining Moments, Robert B. Baird)

I'm sure this is not the last time I will post those particular lyrics. The older I get, the more relevant they become.

So, Lawyer-in-the-Works headed off to the great unknown of Spokane, Washington and law school. Okay, so Spokane isn't that unknown, and we are planning a trip up there soon to see her new digs and take in the beauties of the Great American Northwest. Chant with me "Road trip! Road trip! Road trip!" But until then, texting is a blessing. We know that she and her mom made it fine, and she enjoyed her first day of classes (which she said was mostly orientation).
