I think, like you said, it will be different the second time around when Becca goes through it. But this time, it is really a learning experience for everyone, parent and child. And really, its just as much for you as Kristen, it is hopefully going to offset some of what you will be helping pay for her college (or less she'll take out in loans, either way). So it benefits everyone. If she wasn't doing anything else, I'd be more inclined to say she needs to be doing it herself, but she's busy, and all those activities lead into the whole college, scholarship aspect. At least that's how I look at it. My DH would be more like the librarian's attitude, its her stuff, she should be doing it...

A friend of mine who's 2 DD's are both in college now told me when she went through it with the first one how much time they both put into scholarships and school applications. She gave me a few pointers to keep in mind that i"ve passed along to Jordyn, like keep a binder and put down all your community service hours, all your school activities and any certificates or honors you get from them, any essays your write that are a good representation of your work, etc. so you have it all in one central location so that when you're applying to places you don't have to constantly be looking stuff up, sort of like your work resume. I am glad she gave me some of those pointers, or I think I would already be panicked about so many more things that I already am!

Hi everyone, hope it's been a good Tuesday for you. Pretty regular work day for me, although I learned that we'll be getting probably three new students among my two classes in the next week or so.

I am just glad to be home right now! I worked in the preschool program today, and then did Homework Club and it was crazy. I don't know if it is the weather or cabin fever or what, but anyway, things were pretty silly this afternoon. I had to get the signatures I was missing on that scout paperwork, DS had pep band tonight at the girls' basketball game and I let him go, since he needs the participation points for band. I am home decompressing and doing laundry and cleaning the kitchen. again. I also need to return a phone call and I don't want to because it is someone who wants me to take on another project. Sigh.
