This year, he decided it was time to finish the college degree that he had started in 1992. He looked at a variety of options and finally decided his best option would be to complete it online using Liberty courses. So, he set his mind to it and completed 36 hours of school work in 7 months. Amazing! We are so proud of him. Since he had finished all of his classes online, we decided that we should go see the place that is now his Alma Mater. So, one day of our camping trip, we drove the 25 minutes to Lynchburg and walked the campus of Liberty University.
I insisted on taking a photo of Ryan with a Liberty sign before we left, but rain was coming, so this is the first one we found. So, no, his degree isn't in Law, but it was the best we could do.

We had lunch at Doc's Diner. Let me just say, my college meal plan offered nothing so nice as this. What happened to the cafeteria?
Before we know it, she'll be the one on campus. Maybe Liberty will be in her future?
This LU emblem can be seen from all over Lynchburg. It definitely struck us as a true "college town."
By the time we got back to the campsite, the rain was clearing up, so we decided to take a hike. The trees were beautiful and the kiddos had a great time picking up leaves and acorns.
Of course, no camping trip is complete without some hot dogs and s'mores. So, after hiking up an appetite, we indulged in moderate amounts of nitrates and marshmallows. YUM!
