On the day after her birthday she passed her driver's permit test. We have another driver in the family!
Liz filled decks of cards for each of us with "52 ways she loves us." Each card had a note. This one says"you will put the cookie dough on the sheet for me." They were very personal and I cried :)
The college search has continued throughout the winter. Helen has heard from almost all the schools and has been accepted with merit at all of them. She was named a Schubert Scholar at Ohio Wesleyan and invited to compete for additional funding so we took a trip to Ohio in January. It was quite a lot of work to prepare as she had to create a portfolio of her work.
She also took her portfolio to the College of Wooster and met with the Theatre Department and a number of students. They also have given her substantial funding.
So now we wait for all the final offers to come in so she can begin to weigh all the various factors. She almost has too many choices!
