Oh... and yesterday's other piece of good news

The weather was gorgeous yesterday, so the kids and I went up to the park for our first picnic of the year. We ate fresh fruit and hummus in the sunshine, they climbed on a large yew tree, I read Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry Into the Value of Work.

When we arrived home there was an overnight package with the stammer-worthy news that Eldest has been selected as a Rabi Scholar. That was more than a little amazing. We knew Columbia wanted her, but... wow.

MIT also came in with a fine package of scholarships, though nothing quite so heady as this. So where (or if) Eldest goes to college is entirely up to her. At this point the primary factor is probably  where she feels she fits in best. And gee it's nice to be able to choose between two great places. 


  1. Big congratulations to her! Heady indeed.

  2. Wow. That's amazing! "Congratulations" doesn't even begin to do it.

    Also: I'm also reading Shop Class as Soul Craft.

  3. Motherrrrrrrrrrrrrr, do you have to tell the entire Internet?
