Well. We just got the news, the little one is going to Christchurch, NZ for 2 years for graduate school. Today was the first possible day of acceptances, so she's in their first choice batch of applicants. She's totally psyched!

<weep>We will be paying international tuition.</weep>

I'm already not seeing her as much as I'd like, and it'll be too expensive to see her as often as I do now. On the other hand, I suppose I have a little less of a stake in the election now, we may all burn down to the ground, but at least someone will make it out alive. (Watch, only to be crushed in an earthquake... ;)

There, there. The west coast gets more earthquakes than NZ. And in the meantime there's always Skype.

The money part hurts, I'm sure, but what an opportunity for her! What's she studying that she has to go to Kiwi for?

(If the election goes as we hope it won't, you can take refuge here.)

She's in a 2 year masters program for speech therapy. It's a small program, 26 students per graduating class, rather than the hundreds she'd be in if she stayed in Colorado. It'll enable her to work in NZ if she can get the correct type of visa, and to come back and work if she can't get the right visa. Classes start in Feb. It's her dream vacation location, so she's very excited. We'll have to do a lot of texting, fb, and skype (though the time zones are going to make that hard). Oh yeah and that means our cell phone bills will triple next year since we'll no longer be able to use her employee discount.

I have that to look forward to in about a year and a half .... It'll be brilliant for her ... and yeah the money part ... will hurt ...*hugs* and congratulations to the girl though!

(I'm praying and hoping that Girl will find a course here that she enjoys/wants to do)

Yeah, I hope yours chooses to stay close to home! Even then, it feels odd to watch them go off and start building their own lives.
