On Sunday we received very good news. Abigail had been buzzing and hiding, waiting for news on her early decision application. Sunday morning we discovered that she has been admitted to Smith College and will be joining the class of 2018 next September. We are extremely happy for and proud of her but as her mother and I said, “Now that you have demonstrated what we knew, that you are a great young woman…why don’t you stay home?”
Given that won’t happen we decided we would buy a Christmas Tree instead. We gave it a few days to fall and then decorated tonight.
