Maddy understandably decided she wasn't much into me blogging about her life, afterall. But she did approve the following announcement: she's been accepted to several places, most notably Western Washington University in Bellingham. Laurie's favorite acceptance is Savannah School of Art & Design. And they're both deliriously happy.
We're heading back to Bellingham in April for the official "accepted freshman" weekend, when her other choices are also clear, and then she'll decide.
I'm still writing about this year, stuffed appropriately in my bedside journal. When she's in her 20's or 40's or, if she happens to ask, I'll wrap it in satin and pass her story back to her.
