About 4 weeks ago, a new college opportunity came up for Nana Yaw. He was offered a full basketball scholarship to play at Gillette Junior College in Gillette, Wyoming. If you remember, his previous college decision was to attend North Dakota State University as a preferred walk-on for their basketball team. He had also received an academic scholarship for attendance at North Dakota State University. The new offer by Gillette certainly got us thinking and asking God for guidance! Yaw had already been getting all the check-in information in the mail for his dorms, meals, and academic schedule for NDSU! He had been set to go to NDSU for months…..and then…..the new scholarship offer……and then some prayer…..and then some advice from Jake…..and then some more prayer…….and then a few days went by……and then…….
And so, Yaw is off to college this week! I can only imagine all of the new adventures just waiting there for him! So, Jake and I are 28 years old and sending our first kid off to college. :)
Also, I am still reminiscing about our time with Yaw’s family. Just have to share these pictures that my friend Stacy took. You can just see their beautiful spirits SHINING in these pics!
She even got an impromptu pic of me and my munchkins! JJ and Jayla were practically begging Stacy to take their picture and it wasn't even our photoshoot! When I schedule our family pics later this year they probably won't want anything to do with the camera!
And I love this one....Nana wanted a picture with the Huxley water tower! :)
