She’s an adult

Well, Heath and I managed to get Katy to legal adulthood without too many mess ups along the way. Today is her birthday but the celebrating started Saturday with a laser tag and video game party at Main Event. I tried to get a photo of all the girls. In the first one, Ivy was […]

Back to Berry

Katy wanted to make another trip to Berry College near Rome before making her final decision. I wasn’t sure when we were going to do this, then I looked at their calendar and realized they have classes Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week. Our school district is off the whole week so that was going […]

A little native culture

You know how we are on cultural adventures around here but it’s usually something international. Today we decided to experience something a little more local. For the last 20 years there has been a powwow at Stone Mountain Park. For about the last 10 years I’ve wanted to go. For about the last 10 years […]

A second trip to Milledgeville

Katy is still wrestling with the college decision. Right after school ended in May we took a tour of Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville (summary here).

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 […]

A trip to Rocket City

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 […]

Vacation Part II: Sea and Fun

The other thing I thought would be fun to do was the beach on Mustang Island so we did that on Thursday. It’s about a two-hour drive and a five-minute ferry ride from Victoria. I told Heath and Katy how back in the ’70s and ’80s the ferry line would be two or more hours […]

A college visit twofer

This week we decided to visit two campuses of the same university. I’m not real sure how Georgia Southern got on our radar. Katy and I met with an admissions counselor at a college fair so that might have been it and it’s gets mentioned, I’ve known who have gone there. Then they had an […]
