We got to Virginia on Sunday, August 20th in the early evening. John was moving into his dorm the next day. Virginia is such a pretty state, and, like Massachusetts, an especially historic one. I'm glad that John chose to go to school at Southern Virginia University. I think it's a great fit for him--LDS-based, so kind of like a mini East Coast BYU, with NCAA wrestling (which BYU doesn't have), and not all the way across the country (which he didn't really care about but I like). Perfect!
On Sunday evening we had a delicious dinner at Ruby Tuesday, which was next door to our hotel. Our waitress had a Southern accent and was very friendly. We were pretty much in the South, after all!
