My future Hoosier...


After much debate (on both the part of mother AND daughter) the decision has been made.
Tessa is headed in the direction of Indiana greatness. I can honestly say that the other morning when Tessa sent me a text message telling me she had made her decision I was stunned. I could not imagine that she had gone to bed, been driven to school and then made up her mind. I was wrong.
When I asked her what prompted her to decide, she told me that she woke up and felt confident that this was the right choice.
My heart broke a little, but I'm excited for her. So much for my secret dream of her staying at home and going to school online from our living room or something where I could see her every day.
If I knew how to make a heart on a keyboard I could tell her I heart her.
Congrats my future Hoosier. Welcome to the legacy of great people who have chosen the state of Indiana. And while I know I lost my cool on a few of the college visits I wouldn't trade them for anything. Thank you for letting your old mom and little sister tag along for the ride.
*My favorite Hoosiers, not ranked in any order of priority or school affiliation
David Letterman, Bobby Knight, John Mellencamp, Kimberly, Sara and myself. Just for fun I found an old post from 2007 with my IU banner in the background. I've offered Tessa the banner as a peace offering for crying a little when she told me she was really leaving me.

Congrats to her for making such a big decision and this Boiler won't hold it against you! I am hopeful this will mean more trips through Indy for you and drinks for the two of us!
