i have pictures, but today blogger desires that you not see them. maybe tomorrow. in lieu of pictures, i offer this news!
bean is going to barnard college.
it was her first choice, so i am very, very happy. she is still formulating a possible gap year plan, but she is pleased to know where she will be going to school. m and i are relieved that the application/waiting/breath-holding stage of this is over. also? they offered her bunches of financial aid!
