Moving him from Iowa to Northwest Missouri State University in August of 2019 was a short two hour drive and warm weather. Moving him this weekend from Missouri to Colorado was a 1,250 mile round trip in two days and very cold weather. We also got to drive in some snow on the way out just for a little added extra pleasure.

I realize that it is not the end of the world to miss out on a graduation ceremony, but it is still disheartening nonetheless.
