<p>Hi Missy, Northminn et al! thanks for reaching out!
I don't get on here much, but occasionally...have read about all of your kids over the months when I get the chance.
okay here's a snapshot of a report!</p>
<p>My '09 D is happily finishing her sophomore year majoring in psychology at New College of Florida, she has found her groove and I'm proud to say she has definitely become a focused and strong student. Junior year she'll do a semester in New Mexico which she is very excited about. She'll be home for a couple weeks end of May and then she's headed off to a program in California for half the summer that I wish they had for adults, sounds awesome. </p>
<p>My '08 S is still away at London School of Economics, studying abroad for his junior year, he's had a blast traveling all over Europe, and says the LSE general course program is a rather intense program as study abroad programs go, meaning, there is much reading/studying required to do well. He's managing to enjoy while studying...planning a trip to Italy after his finals are done. He returns for a few days in July, then he's off back to Washington and Lee University to do a paid :) research internship. </p>
<p>We all had a great visit to London and a quick stop in Paris over the holidays, as a year was simply too long to not see each other! We actually stayed in LSE housing, as it was a block from the Thames river, across from St Paul's cathedral ;)</p>
<p>My '14 S has had a fab year as a freshman in HS, active in activities, balancing fun with studying. He took his AP Bio exam on Monday and came home beamingly confident about how he felt he did. He's a naturally funny, outgoing and independent kid, He's spending two weeks at a leadership camp in Wisconsin this summer. I'm so pleased he has internal motivation to succeed, wants to emulate his sibs...the babies of the family can learn from those older ones.</p>
<p>I feel very blessed</p>
