Can you be happy & sad at the same time?

Emily with one of her two acceptance lettersAs the parent of a soon to be high-schooler who was just accepted to the school of her choice the answer is a resonding yes!

We are thrilled that Emily was accepted to both schools she applied to and most especially to the school that she really wants to attend. Yet it's bittersweet at the same time because I can't imagine her not attending her current school. She's been there since Kindergarten and it just feels like home to all of us. Hannah's still there - for now anyway - she may be moving too since she's the only girl in her class. So, this may be good-bye for us to a school that we really love and that we've really been involved with on pretty much a daily basis since Emily started there.

Oh, and did I forget to mention, that tuition for Emily will be almost double next year? That part is definitely not fun but we knew it was coming. We''re really happy with the schools that Emily did apply to and we're looking forward to a great four years with our almost high-schooler!
