Michaela has been stressing about college. I suppose this is simply a taste of what's to come as our children grow and prepare to leave the nest...or fly the coop. Shannon and I knew that there would not be an issue with the colleges she wanted to attend, but kept teasing her that she'd have to repeat another year with us here at home. She was totally concerned that she wasn't going to be accepted to any college, so when she received her acceptance letter from Carroll today she was greatly relieved. She has pretty much made up her mind that Carroll is where she wants to go to school, but would love to receive acceptance letters from the other two colleges to which she applied.
