Will he be a bear or a lion? hmmmm.......

So yesterday, Dak and I had his last college visit. tear. I am so happy that he has checked out options and was not so set on just one thing. He is starting to see things come together.
So in honor of our college visit, we took our walking shoes pic =) And notice Dak's green for St. Patty's day and yes the other is orange. I know, just work with him. Afterall he is 18 =)
Here is my sweet son. We had so much fun. Oh and let me just interject. Yes Dak's hair is still blue, okay so now it is a nice shade of blueish-green. nice. He is, however, getting it cut and colored, a more professional color =) (thank you college visit) next week on spring break. YAY!!!!!

Here we are. Me and my sweet boy. We had SUCH a good day!! Even though our tour guide left a lot to be desired, he started looking at things beyond her and seeing things as they might really be if he went there. I was so proud of him. Sometimes a tour guide can make it or break it, but Dak really looked at the campus as a whole and really took in the experience, much like he did at MSU. So I feel like he has a real sense of what it might be like.

Another plus, Dak has some friends that go there that were really able to give us the low-down.
This is beautiful Cheyenne. She helped us a lot. We had lunch with her and Addie. I didn't get a pic of Addie, but she really gave us a lot of feed back and was very honest with us. It was great.

Addie told us to go to his department (business) and really get a feel for it. So we did and then we met Addie at her music building (she is a music major), and he met the choir teacher. He has an audition on April 13th at 1:00, for Concert Chorale and Show Choir. He has to take a concert piece and a Broadway tune. This audition will also be for a scholarship. I'm so excited for him. He is really nervous.
So now we wait for his acceptance letters and packages and then he will make his final decision. This is such an exciting time. I'm trying not to think too far ahead, because then I get sad. I was laying in bed last night so happy he was laying in his bed, knowing that in the not-to-distant future, he will be living and sleeping away from home. WOW!!! It has seriously happened SO quick!!!!!
So what will we be?..... a bear or a lion?..... Time will tell.....
Love you ~~ have a Super Blessed Day,


  1. It's definitely an exciting time to be a mom!! You're doing great!!

  2. So excited for Dak and his big decisions coming up. We will be praying for him in the weeks to come as those decisions get made.

    I was a music major in college also and can still remember auditioning for those scholarships. I had to the same two piece types. I have no doubt he will do GREAT!
