She Did It!

I can remember 13 years ago when we started homeschooling. I couldn't even picture my little baby growing up and going off to college. She was such a tiny bitty thing. There was no way she'd be that big any time soon.

It's funny how quickly the years have rushed past me. The tiny girl who did math with a tiara on her head so that her "brain would be sparkly" is now a high school graduate. She finished all of her classes in December with a 3.96 GPA. She had been accepted to her first choice for college (The Jindal School of Business at the University of Texas at Dallas), and was waiting to hear about whether or not she had made it into the highly competitive Honors Business  Program.

She got the email last night. She's in!

For those of you who are worried about college and wondering if your children will be able to get into the school and program of their choice - they can. It's entirely doable.

If a slacker mom like me can get her kid ready, there's no reason that you can't do it too.

There is nothing that makes a homeschool mom prouder! My #1 is a sophomore at a local university. I can't believe it either. I feel the same way as you--if I can do it, anyone can! Congrats to your #1.

Deo Gratias!
My oldest was accepted to his one and only choice - the Virginia Military Institute! Even his alumni mentor said he would not get in because he was a homeschooler!
Now we are praying as how to finance it.
But God took him this far, not giving up yet.
My family is still reeling from the news. "How did he get in? He's homeschooled?" LOL
