Well, I am behind a few days posting about Nick's BD!!! He turned 17 on the 26th and it turned out he didn't have to work that night so we actually got to celebrate on his birthday 'day', which doesn't always happen.
It was great to spend time with the all the kids and we are proud of Nick! He's a quiet kid and his dad, Darrin, said "you have to show the email you got this week." So, Nick hands me his phone and I read outloud the email acceptance letter he got for Michigan Tech! This was his first college acceptance letter so we were all pretty excited! Only problem the school is in Houghton, Michigan, which is almost 9 hours away! Not a weekend trip home, that's for sure. Nick is looking at other colleges, two are in Michigan and within a decent distance. We'll see....hard this year with not being able to visit these schools in person. So many tours were cancelled last spring, which is hard for seniors. Virtual tours are nice but not the same as being there in person. He'll make a good decision and we'll all be behind him regardless of the school he picks.
