I was laying on the couch half asleep. My daughter runs in the room crying,  grabs me by the shirt and starts shaking me yelling " DAD! DAD! " I ( now fully awake and in panic mode) ask her what's wrong.  She then tells me that the scholarship paper  I had to proof read no less than 500 times scored her a FULL RIDE to Michigan Tech!!!!! I am so unbelievably PROUD!!!  PERFECT END TO A LONG STRESSFUL MONTH!!!!!!!!

What's next?!

She will be finishing out winter and spring semester at community college, in May she receives her High school diploma and her associates degree.   June and July I think she will just be hanging out , saying good byes to local friends and family and getting ready for the move up North. In August once everything is packed we move her up North to campus.   Her boyfriend ( who unbeknownst to her had applied and got accepted to Michigan Tech a couple months before they started dating, the same time that my daughter applied to Michigan Tech) is currently a full time student in the computer engineering program at school will be there to help her set up.  See that's another crazy thing.... I really really really love her boyfriend, he is a great young man. I thought I would be the stereotypical Dad who hated all boys, don't get me wrong there were two she dated that I couldn't stand and didn't last long, but Conor is such an amazing guy.   Allie would be at work and he would come over and hang out with me lol.  We have had lots of heart to heart talks and he has honest to goodness become family to us.  One day in the future I hope he comes to ask for her hand in marriage,  as I wouldn't mind calling him son , but I'm getting a head of myself , school first.  It seems like yesterday I was walking her to her first day of kindergarten.   It's crazy how time flies.  When she walked with her class last May for her " high school graduation " ( as an ASM student she has an extra year of high school but graduates with her diploma and Associates and her school pays for everything) I got her a large brass compass with Robert Frosts The Road not taken engraved on the cover along with a lengthy letter to her written by me that ended with I love you, no matter what happens this compass will help you find your way home. Funny side note, the ink that letter was penned in was a gift from Blackhorse.  Anyways, I'm rambling,   I love my family on the BoB, you are all great friends that share victories and defeats,  you are there with congratulations in the good times and words of kindness, wisdom and inspiration in the dark times.
