A Big College Wahoo

The Baby Bird got into her first choice.
I am a proud Mama.
And a sighing Mama.
Next week, we expect Augie to be flexing his wings.

The Incredible Woody said...

Yippee - Hope she will be fairly close and not cross country!

Ellen said...

Way to go Bird. Congrats.

And Mama, congrats to you too. Now, no clipping her wings.

Sara said...

Congrats to your baby girl! My daughter graduated from UVa last year and loved every minute of her four years there. It's a great school! C'ville is a fun town to visit too. I highly recommend the Boar's Head Inn but make your reservations early!
Yay!

Congratulations! I am sure it is bittersweet for you!

Snooty Primadona said...

Yay! There's nothing to relieve your fears like college acceptance. Whew! Now on to Augie, who I have no doubts will get the school he wants as well.

Woo Hoooooo!

Keetha said...

Oh, Mama, congrats. I'm thrilled for her and so happy for you. Sniff, sniff

Trisha said...

Congrats, Baby Bird! How thrilling! I remember what it was like to be heading off to college.

Good luck to Augie, too!

Daryl said...

Oh way to go Bird! Well done. And I am sure Augie will be hearing from his first choice soon too.

You did good too Mama!

Lisa said...

Oh congratulations. I know it is going to be a tough time for you, them both leaving at the same time and probably to different locations. But as you go to that next stage of life be so proud of what you and they have accomplished. Your job of being a momma is no where near finished. The BEST is yet to come. Or should I say it just keeps getting better and better. You are so blessed to be close to your kids while they are teenagers. Not everyone has that. And you are sure making good use of that camera!

Grandma J said...

Congratulations! You are the best mom, otherwise she would have to settle for her second choice.

Best of luck to Augie.

And then get ready to tighten your belt!

Caution Flag said...

If it really is Virginia, that says volumes about your girl. WOW indeed :)

Deb said...

Baby steps, Friend. Little tiny baby steps...and remember to breath...and a martini now and then will help a lot.

Starwoodgal said...

Wonderful news! Congrats to the baby bird.

Country Girl said...

Oh, I am so excited for you and for her! This is great news.

Country Girl said...

If it's UVa, that's where my eldest son went. That's a tough school to get into!! Especially if you're out of state.
What an absolutely beautiful campus, though. I adored going down there to visit him. And for camping, it can't be beat with Shenandoah nearby.
Hey, if you need a good B&B, let me know. I stayed in a little cabin nearby that was awesome. Very rustic!

Joanie said...

Awesome!

Sassy said...

I am so excited for her! It's ALWAYS fun to get what you want...

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Wahoo! She'll be in our neck of the woods. Not to worry BHE and I will be around!

imom said...

Very good news indeed!! Congratulations to everyone!

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

I only hope I am able to say the same thing in 5 short years from now.

Congratulations!

I have a cousin in his second year at UVA and he loves it.

noble pig said...

OMG congratulations. That is such a good feeling!

Kacey said...

Well, congrats to her!! It's nice to have that pressure off, I bet! Wonderful news.

Life with Kaishon said...

Congratulations to your little girl : ). Don't they grow fast? Too stinking fast!

jojo said...

awww...what a bittersweet time. Congrats baby bird and best of luck to you and your mama bird.

Sandie said...

Congratulations to Baby Bird on her first of many adult decisions! Our oldest is just completing her 2nd year of college and has recently caught a case of the sophomore itch---considering transferring schools, changing her major, etc. *Sigh* I find the itch more stressful than her leaving for college in the first place!

Decadent Housewife said...

My, when those little pieces of paper arrive in the mailbox - it set my heart aflutter, for sure. Wonderful!

Living on the Spit said...

Me and Thomas are So very proud.

That good old song of
Wah-hoo-wah
We'll sing it o'er and o'er
It cheers our hearts and
warms our blood
To hear them shout and roar.
We come from Old Virginia,
Where all is bright and gay.
Let's all join hands and give a yell
For the dear old UVa
Wah-hoo-wah,
Wah-hoo-wah.
Uni-v, Virginia,
Hoo-rah-ray,
Hoo-rah-ray,
Ray! Ray! U-V-a

big hair envy said...

Hoo-Ray!!! Way to go, Bird!!!

Mama, I'm SO excited that you will now be a frequent VA visitor:) You can use The Bird as an excuse to come visit ME!!! YAY!

P.S. I promise to keep an eye on her for you;)

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

What fantastic news. Don't forget you have an alum and a crazy blogging friend just 3 hours away, although that may not be of any comfort.

She will have the time of her life, all the way around...academically, recreationally, athletically (if she's so inclined) socially and fraternitypartyly.

imbeingheldhostage said...

Wow, that is fantastic!! Congrats. To both of you :-)

Debbie said...

Congratulations Miss Bird! This is wonderful news and I bet you are beside yourself with excitement! We'll take care of your Mama while you are away. Promise.

And Mama? You done good and we're proud of you :)
