And, I am broke!!! Lol! Go back, you are costing me too much money!! This is her Sophomore year, so we had a lot of things. But we bought her clothes, some supplies, and such. Went to Costco and got pads, shampoo, mouthwash, some basics like that she can use through out the year. Her books she paid for, she works and got them on Amazon.

That will be us next year!  Hope that she has a good year at school and you have a good year without her being around!

Glad to hear it!  Lizzie is waiting for her acceptance letter to arrive from the University of Akron.  Her student portal indicates that she has been accepted but no paperwork yet....and she won't believe it until she sees the paperwork!  LOL!!

We had Lizzie research colleges and make a visit to some the summer after her sophomore year!  In her junior year we did repeat visits and she had all her applications in by September!

Dd went for early decision as well. It makes senior year so relaxed!

It sure does.....no waiting, no test taking, and they know where they are going.
