As if that part above wasn't good enough, this next paragraph is like icing on the cake:
Elliott had completed the early admissions packages for a few colleges but Northeastern was the one he wanted to get into the most. Lucie and I got our Master's degrees from there but we really didn't influence his decision. He pretty much holed himself up in his room, researched colleges offering him what he wanted (accounting and marketing), and emerged with a Top Three list. Over the summer he and Lucie and Ashleigh took a whirlwind trip to Boston to visit the schools and made a pit stop at the Patriots training camp on the way home. That sealed the deal in his mind - Northeastern was the place for him! And now he is in with some grants too! We still have a few bucks to come up with but if that is where God wants him to be, the money will come.
He is ranked in the top 10 of his class of 350 at the high school with a 4.3 GPA so he can coast a bit. Lacrosse is coming up soon and he will be traveling to Anaheim, CA this spring for another DECA competition (national business and marketing organization). The other day, he scored the highest IN THE STATE on a practice test.
If things keep going as planned, Lucie and I will be able to enjoy our retirement with a son handling our finances and a daughter managing our health!
