A couple of weeks ago, we got Jacob's test scores for the PSAT and ACT. Since then, letters from colleges have been flooding our mailbox.
Tulane, TCU, Hampden-Sydney College, Missouri S&T, Washington University, on and on.
Jacob picks up the mail on his way in from the bus stop each afternoon and most of it is for him.
Today, as he came in with a stack of mail, he said, "Hey, look, Colorado School of Mimes!"
"Oh, it says school of mines. Never mind, I'm not excited anymore."
