A New Phase In Life
So, this first picture is of Carrie heading off to her first college class that started Thursday evening. Isn't she precious?!?! (Please ignore the messed up wall in the background - a bookcase has been hiding it but we had to move it to work on the dining room floor...a blog for another day!!!)
This was taken this morning (after much persuasion). Carrie is headed out the door to her first full day as an official college freshman.
She is scheduled for 18 1/2 hours this semester and is currently looking for a job that does NOT involve cleaning. She has a 75% scholarship from the Academy which is positively wonderful but can you believe that somehow Dave and I make too much money for her to qualify for a Pell Grant?!?! So, there is a small bill left over and needless to say, she needs a job!!
So - I am rather proud of her and what she has accomplished. I will have to work on a blog about Ashley to keep things even but she is always moving too fast for me to snap a picture!!!!
