Change of Plan......

We now have two Wolverines in the family. And no huskies. Goalieboy is no longer going up to the even-more-frozen even-more-North and will be in the college of Engineering at The University of Michigan.

Just Don't ask. It has been a little fraught.

Well, good for him.

The path may not have been a direct one, but he made it to the destination.

Not a destination just the next stop on the line

Pulling out your credit card isn't helicoptering. Kids don't have credit cards.

Congrats. I can think of some really awful alternative plans... This isn't one. Good for him and you.

....and we just learned we're going to be a whole shitload better off! the cost for him was pretty much the same at both unis, but pologirl just got her fees lopped in half because goalieboy registered (I guess they already quoted his fees with the multipack discount -we thought it odd that Tech was just as expensive as UofM, even with all the academic scholarships they offered him.....)

Maybe if you register a ghost kid it will go down even more.
