It's January and plans are already being shored up for prom....in May. And yes, my wallet will be a tad lighter after that highly anticipated visit to Peaches, THE Disneyland of Prom Dress Stores. Sigh. I dread to think.
Em was accepted to her two college choices, both with lovely scholarships attached. She has picked her #1 college choice, Loyola University, and now we are on the whirlwind of completing additional scholarship applications. College does not come cheap these days--especially private colleges on the north shore of Lake Michigan. She worked hard to get into that college, so we will make it work...somehow.
It's amazing how these four years of high school have flown and I know all too well how fast these next 4 months will go as well. January is nearly over and graduation is quickly coming--heck, she was measured for her cap and gown today. I'm trying to hold on, for it's a whirlwind at the clock ticks down.
Goodbye High School. Goodbye bustling house. Goodbye money.
