Emelie's First Step Toward College

I'm sitting in the campus library at Indiana Tech while my 15-year-old baby is down the hall taking her first CLEP test. A passing grade will get her 6 English credit hours toward her degree in history.

She wants to have a Bachelor's Degree by the time she graduates from high school, but I'm pretty sure she should still be in pigtails wearing a tutu holding her beloved Barney!

Making this experience more surreal is the fact that we're expecting another blessing in May, need to potty train one boy, have another child needing a razor, and pretty much everything in between. Never dull!


  1. Ahhh! NO! She can't be ready...ok, I am not ready for our girls to be doing this yet. How is that possible?

  2. Lainie, you are a blessed mommy, that's for sure! You constantly amaze the rest of us moms out there just trying to keep up with just 2 kids!

    Keep reaching for your goal Em, you can do it! You are your mommy and daddy's child (so smart)!
