Planning Ahead

While my oldest gets ready to enter high school next year we have been talking about College for a few years.  We live in a city that has excellent schools of higher education so it's not uncommon to start putting your sights on "majors" while in middle school.

Our neighborhood holds a wonderful college, however it's a private school which translates to "Big Bucks".  As of today my newly minted 14 year old says that she wants to go to that school and still live at home.  Fine we me!!!  (You and I know that the "living at home" bit won't stick ;->)

If she has her mind set to attend this private school she needs scholarships. No doubt.  That is it. That is all.  We are looking at websites to help with this endeavor.  I've found a site where you can browse hundreds of scholarships, collegeanswer.com.  Their information is thorough and so helpful. They also provide guidance on military scholarships

I may be jumping ahead of myself regarding planning for college but that's alright.  Maybe by starting now my heart will be ready for when she really does make that move.

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
