Colin Goes to College

Just in time for Christmas, Colin got an acceptance letter from Western Carolina University.  He's over the moon!  His senior exit project presentation went very well; he got a 7 out of 8.  Now if we can just get him to pass Statistics!  WCU is in Cullowhee, a small mountain town 50 miles west of Asheville.  Looks like a beautiful campus.  We'll probably be taking a tour over the holidays.  He'll have snow!  Lucky.

Is anyone still reading this blog???

Peeking Through the Cobwebs

Let's see ... at the end of October, my dear friends Judith & Jeremy from across the pond in Oxford, UK, came for a visit.  Long, long ago, in another galaxy, Judith and my mom were friends in the Philippines.  We spent two summers with her at her home in England, after she moved back home.  One summer I worked as her nanny for her two children, Rupert & Clare.  Suffice it to say, Judith and her husband, Jeremy, are dear, dear friends of ours.  Melanie fell in love with "Juwith" and never left her side.  We went to Old Salem in Winston-Salem, and one day they went to Asheville to see the Biltmore House.

I just burned my finger on a hot glue gun, so I will finish later.
