We took our freshman DD to college just about 2 weeks ago. After a long college search visiting many colleges (some of them twice), we thought we had a perfect fit with the one she chose. But you never know til they get there, right?
Well. . . it does seem to be a perfect fit! Every night DD emails her 15yo sister to tell her about her day, and she is ridiculously happy. She emails me or texts me to ask me something (or ask FOR something), and occasionally she calls her dad and 10yo brother. In all of these conversations, she sounds sooooooo happy - with her classes, her roommate, her friends, her dorm room, her activities, the town she's in - everything about her life.
After all that work, what a relief to know that it is paying off! I wake up every morning so grateful that it has turned out well for her.
Hopefully I didn't make anyone ill with all that joy, but I just had to share. People on this board were so helpful in getting us through the journey *to* college, that I just wanted to say that the arrival has been as good as we could possibly have hoped.
