Yesterday was filled with great things. One highlight... visiting one of Madeline's former classmates at ASU. I'm so glad we had the chance to see a little bit of "big college" life on campus. So many people... so much activity... quite a lot of trash... most of which was in her dorm room. Speaking of dorm rooms... they're are smaller than I thought they'd be... kind of reminded me of a tree fort with bunk beds... cozy.
As Honey Boo Boo played on the large flat screen in the corner... I thought... I don't know how the school matched up these two roommates but they seem to be perfect for each other.
Madeline will settle into her own college environment when we return to Oregon week after next. Her experience will be very different. Her scholarship for two years free at Chemeketa Community College will be a fabulous start to an awesome education. Sadly(?)... there is no dorm life. I sure hope she is satisfied living at home. I'll do my best to stay out of her way. I am thinking though... how hard would it be to start our own sorority or something? We could pick some random Greek letters and plan activities and stuff. Hazing would not be allowed... but harmless pranks encouraged.
I am so excited for both of these young women. While life experiences may seem similar... all children... all paths are different. It is God's Love for us that stays the same.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
