I’ve watched my beautiful oldest child work so very hard for years, not only in her academics but in volunteer work, NHS, varsity sports, music, Best Buddies…as well as helping me around the house whenever she could. With all her activities keeping her at school late hours, she tasked me with Check the Mailbox for College Decisions and Text Me Immediately Duty, a heady honor.
Earlier this spring, my hands shook as I pulled the Fat Envelope out of the mailbox, postmarked Notre Dame Indiana, 46556. Couldn’t get past the “Dear Madeleine, CONGRATULATIONS! Welcome to the Class of 2019!” without a happy scream and a little dance of joy right there at the mailbox. So very happy for you, Madeleine.
