As you prepare for a snowstorm, I’m wondering if I can get back into it, from a cafe on a southern Main Street.
Imagine the tourist kitsch of Keystone, SD times 5 or 6, and you could easily tell where I am today. My #4 daughter and I are in Branson, Missouri for a college visit to College of the Ozarks, a.k.a., Hard Work U.
The biggest advantage, if you can get accepted, is that it is free. With a 9% acceptance rate, it’s a slim chance. But, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I know I’d prefer to have all proud SDSU jackrabbits of my kids, but I try to let them make their own choices. And there’s something to be said to going out in the world on their own.
Even if she doesn’t get in, my daughter has a high GPA while taking honors coursework, and more activities than I can keep track of, so I suspect she’ll do just fine in the college hunt.
It’s always a good thing to see your kids spreading their wings as they prepare to leave the nest. And in this case, I think #4 is ready to take flight to the next chapter of her life.
