My Baby is Growing Up

I've known for a long time (you know, forever) that my daughter wouldn't stay little forever. In fact, she's 13 now! It's crazy!

She's in 8th grade. She's so smart. She's so pretty. She's becoming so independent. She's taking high school classes, while still in middle school.

In short, she's growing up too fast, and she's AMAZING!!

Last night, however, she proved that she's even more amazing than I could have imagined.

We went to the College Fair sponsored by the local school district. There were about 200 schools there. She grabbed this list/map and decided on the schools she wanted to visit. She already has a chosen major. She walked up to the reps and introduced herself and asked about the program she wants.

After talking to the reps for a few minutes, they all offered for her to give information and "be sure you apply early." So, the Princess says, "How early can I apply? I'm in 8th grade." Out of the 10-12 schools that she spoke with, over 1/2 of them responded with, "Wait! What?! You're only in 8th grade?! I've spoken with Seniors who aren't as poised and confident as you are. You are doing a great job! Keep up the search. Come see us."

When we walked out last night, she had a list of 4-5 schools that she wants to check out. Luckily for her dad and me, 4 of them are in state. But, at the rate she's going, we may not have to pay for her schooling! 

I just can't believe that my baby girl is growing up so quickly.
