A very special letter came in the mail this week. One that we have been anxiously awaiting. I got the letter while he was at work so I was able to run and get some balloons and things to celebrate. Don’t worry, I didn’t open the letter. I left that for him. I was just pretty positive that I knew what it said since it was from the Office of Admissions and had “Congratulations” written on it. I also knew that we would most likely be hearing back from them this week.
As soon as he came home from work, I told him there was something on the table for him. He quickly caught on to what it probably was and ran to change out of his work clothes before opening it. When he saw that I had the balloons on the chair I wanted him to sit in, he grabbed a can of Pepsi and told me he got it to drink since it matched for my pictures. I have him trained so well!
All of us were gathered around the table anxiously waiting to hear what the letter said.
He took his time reading every last word of the letter. I think he purposefully read it slow to keep us all in suspense.
Finally he couldn’t keep it in any longer and started smiling. Then he told us that he was accepted. We are all so excited for him. University of Memphis is his first choice college so it’s BIG news and we couldn’t be more proud. He made this decision all on his own after much careful thought. The reasons he chose to attend here are very mature and well thought out. I am so proud of him. In case you didn’t know, we live close to Memphis so that is even better!
They are the “Memphis Tigers” and I will have to admit that later that night I ordered the “Tiger Mom” decal for my car. I know, I know. I can’t help it. Besides, I have all kinds of stickers on my back window (it’s a Jeep thing) so it was only proper to get one of those too. I guess we are all going to become Tiger fans now.
There are no limits to where you can go with hard work and determination. I love you Logan. I am so proud to be your mom!
