Visiting "Vandy"...oh, so sweet!

Side NOTE: Just spreading the love…along with BS&K...go over to Kim’s blog Just a Southern Girl she is having a giveaway to celebrate her 2nd blogoversary, her 500th post and 25,000 visitor. WE LOVE her blog --you will too...go over and check her out!!!

Joining Sarah for Project 365...even though mine's not relative to the entire's an event I don't want to forget :)

We've already been to:
  • UNC(maybe)
  • Duke(absolutely not, they like themselves ALOT)
  • Wake Forest(liked it)
  • Elon(no, go, too small)
  • University of Alabama(loved it, long drive)
  • Vanderbilt University (AWESOME PreVU!)
  • ...our last will be UGA (woof!)...

As Sassy Granny reminded me today, getting ready for college brings on many "woes" blending into my "goes" for dd heading to college.

I hurt knowing it will never be the same...but, God gives me wonderful hopes and visions of where He'll take her.

My Granny reminds me from Heaven, Jesus NEVER leaves us as long as we don't turn our backs on Him.

So, from now until we reach graduation next Spring...I'll follow the example of my praying Granny who prayed for me after high school...I'll be persistently praying for her to recognize Jesus on her shoulder and in her heart while she's learning her way through college and the rest of her life.

Jer. 33:3
"Call to me and I will answer you
and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."

I have been doing that too! My son is looking at Belmont in Nashville and also at MTSU about 30 min. away. If our kids end up there, we will HAVE to meet!!! :)

Looks like a very cool school :-) What's dd plan to major in?

Nashville is one of those cities with a small town feel, especially around the university. My daddy lived about an hour from there and that's where he spent time in the hospital with his first stroke.

Have y'all looked at any other schools? Plan to? I had fun visiting a couple with my dd a few years ago -- and now she's getting ready to graduate in December. Time goes by soooooo fast!

I just love hearing about so many new schools and the various places that everyone lives. Thanks so much for sharing an intimate part of yours with all of us.

What a huge decision. I remember being so excited for my daughter's college experience - - that is, until it came time for her to actually leave. Boy did I shift from "yeah" to "woe" often.

What fun and exciting adventures lay ahead.

Be blessed,
