I Can Hardly Believe It

I know I have been talking a lot about Squirrel's college pursuit lately and I hope you will bear with me, but I am giddy.

We received an initial letter of tuition awards today and seems she qualifies for her entire year [room, board and books] to be covered!!! We.do.not.have.to.pay.

With all that is going on here at the Skippy Central I cannot tell you how happy [relieved] I am that I know that she can at least attend one of her choices. We should learn about her award to VA Tech next week. Since they are comprable in size and cost I am hoping that VA Tech comes close or covers too.

I don't know what the future holds and to be honest? I am scared but I can now rest a little easier knowing that a huge hurdle is out of the way.
