Can you guess where the twins are going to college???

OK, HERE IS YOUR FIRST HINT: This is my new bumper sticker...

SECOND HINT: This is Annabel's new nightgown....





Just in case you can't figure it out, they are now both accepted to Texas A & M! We now officially are the parents of two AGGIE'S...
In short, their dad and I are so proud of them. Being the fourth and fifth in the family has not been easy. They have had to endure older parents, less energetic parents and have had to do many things on their own. They worked very hard at doing all their applications, essays, reference letters, etc. without much help at all. They began right after school started and worked almost daily on it like it was a subject. They applied to 6 colleges and received acceptances to all. It is sad to say that I haven't been much help to them at all due to all of Annabel's needs. Their dad took time off to travel to visit the colleges and I was able to make the trip to A&M to help look at the dorms.
Seventeen and half years ago you entered our world and we have never been the same since! I mean this in the best way when I say that you have truly been "DOUBLE BLESSINGS.."
Love, Mom and Dad

Congratulations to them! I hope they have a wonderful time. Your system is so different to ours that I know some of the questions one would ask a proud Mama in this country won't work for you - here, one goes to university to study (read for a degree in) a specific subject, rather than doing a wide range of courses as I understand is normal in the US, and, except for language degrees, the courses tend to be 3-year, not 4.

How far is A&M from you? I know you are so proud of them. Believe me, they will appreciate this opportunity even more because they worked for it. Too many kids have everything done/handed to them and appreciate nothing. Yours won't be in that number. =)
Congratulations, girls. Good job.
