Twice the Fun

Eighteen years have flown by and our twins are turning 18 this Sunday. Time flies fast, parents. You are forewarned.

We are in the throes of applying for college scholarships. Talk abut paperwork. It’s very exciting and also fun to see how close their SAT scores and GPAs are. Even though they have been in separate classrooms since preschool, their grades have always been almost identical. Same DNA; same grades. Makes sense. We are very proud of them.

Advice to parents who will apply for scholarships. Take the time to type a standard scholarship application into your Word program. That way, you can customize the applications and also cut and paste information, such as name, address, phone, etc. Chances are they have been in the same sports, clubs, community service, etc.

Also, set up a scholarship “war room” where you have your applications, deadlines and supporting materials readily available.

All for now.
