I have to share or i will pop. about a week ago i reported dd had made the first hurdle of applying to study abroad. today she called and said, she is essentially in, as she recd a letter congratulating her for being accepted on this side of the water, and they are sending her application over to the college in spain(the other side of the water) where she will go for their "thumbs up". i imagine(dont know for sure) they would accept her, unless there are extenuating circumstances. she works so hard, and has really been an easy kid to raise over the years, if anyone deserves this opportunity, she does. im not saying this because she is my child, but she has truly been a pleasure. we have had to get tough with her here and there, and she has always used it as a lesson rather than a point against her. thanks for letting me gloat. im so proud i could bust!!!!
