As I have mentioned, Katy applied to the University of Alabama in Huntsville early (it was an easy application) and was accepted and offered a very nice merit scholarship. They have overnight events for admitted students with three scheduled this semester and then they’ll have some next semester, too. They run from Sunday to Monday […]Read More A taste of college life
The last stop on our 2019 College Tour, which actually started in 2018. The University of Alabama in Huntsville has been on our radar since Katy’s first trip to Space Camp in 2012 when she was 10. She’d always wanted to be an environmental engineer even though I kept telling her you don’t have to […]Read More A trip to Rocket City

I told Heath and Katy how back in the ’70s and ’80s the ferry line would be two or more hours […]Read More Vacation Part II: Sea and Fun

This group focuses on the Singapore American School classes from the 50s through the 70s but anyone is welcome. I […]Read More Food, Fun and Friends.
No, we haven’t had any bad weather unless you count the heat wave. Here Comes the Thunder is the fight song for Georgia College & State University, our latest adventure in “where does Katy want to go to college”. The school mascot is a bobcat named Thunder. All I knew about the school was Katy’s […]Read More Here Comes the Thunder
