OT -- Jenny to UCSD

Last night, Jenny sent back her enrollment papers to UCSD.

She's excited about the choice. Jen will be a "cognitive sciences" major in a department that is respected and well rated.

The downside, there's no marching band or guard -- but she's working on a variety of solutions: She's been invited to march with the SDSU Guard -- which although it will take her away from campus for practices, looks pretty good on YouTube. She's already posted on the UCSD Facebook page an inquiry as to whether anyone wants to join her in creating a Winterguard. And, there is an excellent Winterguard International team in San Diego called "Element" -- she may try out for them, too. Finally, they have something we've never seen before -- a small flag twirling team; it looks cool on YouTube and Jen's looking into it.

So, next year my kid will be living in La Jolla in a dorm with a beach view -- ugh, where did I take the wrong turn, I live in Houston -- and no beach view.

And, she will be going to one of the only schools in the nation that can proudly proclaim "Still undefeated in football."

Finally, the Northern California boy known to me as "Daddy, he's only a friend" will be going there, too. "He's only a friend" has flown here twice this year and Jen is about to fly to Sebastopol to go to his prom with him.

To all of you who told me that the right schools find the right kids -- I think you are right. I appreciate all the support and advice you've given us.

"Go Tritons!"
