I have been reading for awhile, but am finally joining in.
My name is Sailorette, I wanted SailorMom, but that was taken. I am about to send my second child, and oldest daughter off to college. She is going to Wellesley, and is very much looking forward to it, I am not so sure.
Husband and I both work in the medical field. We live in the suburbs of NYC with our four children:
S1-age 20, Going into his junior year at my alma mater, commuting into the city for an internship for the summer. He wasn't home last summer, so it is taken a bit of an an adjustment to having four kids at home again!
D1- age 18, my 2010 grad, starting at Wellesley in the fall. She is my creative child, a dancer and a singer. She plans to major in history and anthropology, or English, or sociology or.... She has many interests! She hopes that law school is in her future and is looking forward to heading off to school in the fall.
S2-age 16, going into his junior year of high school, so I get to start the college start all over again! He is interested in a completely different school than the first two of course, so it should be quite an adventure finding his school.
D2-age 12, my baby! She is going into eighth grade, and I am busy planning her bat mitzvah. Last spring, she told us she wants to go to boarding school for high school, so I may be an empty nester must sooner than I planned
So I had four kids in seven years, and no one told me that meant I would have a never ending college planning journey!
Nice to "meet" you all!
