Too funny...my son is in the Gemstone dorm (he's a Banneker Key scholarship recipient as well), and his sister is in the same dorm (though she's not in Gemstone or the honors program). He's on the 2nd floor and she's on the 5th floor...it would be pretty cool if they know your daughter.
@Critter, my oldest was a month shy of turning 12 when we had our youngest. So like you, we have a 26-year-old and a 14-year-old. (We also have 18-year-old twins in between.) Pretty interesting dealing with the age difference, right?
@Dragonflygarden, your freshman is taking an AP class? Very neat and good for him!
DD2016 seems to be doing well and she's really settling in. She came into this year with a huge affinity for her high school because her beloved older brother just graduated this year, and he loved everything about the school. She's made some good friends and, so far, the JV volleyball team she's on is undefeated. Woot!
