Following Dreams

This was Kaylyn on her way to her first portfolio review.  I told her I wanted a Mary Tyler Moore shot.  Obviously, she didn't know what that was because she didn't know what to do with the hat(yeah, just made me feel old).  Anyway, it is official she will be attending the University of the Arts in Philadelphia( U ARTS) this Fall.  She will be majoring in Art and hoping to slip in some voice or drama classes in as electives.
Ian has gone back and forth with majoring in fire science or music.  After so many visits with his sister and an audition---he was clear he also wanted to go to U Arts and major in Music.
My husband and I are so proud of our children and thrilled they are following their dreams.  I am also relieved that they will be together.  It does make the thought of it a little easier and I feel more focused.  I still couldn't imagine orientations at two different schools and what if they were in two different directions on the same day---you know a lot of what ifs---so, this seems simpler and it just feels right.

Congratulations! I used to work at U of Arts back in the day. It is a great school. I wish I would have taken advantage of taking classes while I was there. Good luck to your children, I'm sure they will love it there.

Crack me up with the MTM analogy. That would be my kids too -- I guess we are just a little bit older than we like to think;) Congrats on your childrens educational decisions. My youngest graduates from HS this month and is lined up with her college choice as well. Enjoy:)

Oh Geralyn, How wonderful. I too would be happy that they will be together. So much easier on their mother's heart. Plus when you visit you will get to see them both. Such talented children, you should be very proud. Hugs, Pam
