I realized it was official that Jensen is deep into teenager-dom when I opened up my email and found a confirmation that she had gotten in to EFY this summer. Did you hear me?
My baby is going to EFY this summer!
It seems like just yesterday I was putting big bows in her hair and diapering her cute little butt! Where did all the time go????
I remember the one time my sister went off to EFY . She came home on such a spiritual high and couldn't stop talking about it.
I want that for Jensen.
None of the other girl's that she hangs out with are going. Understandeable, with the crappy economy and that fact that they raised the price substantially. It was a tough decision for us for those reasons too. There is an outside chance one of her friends might try to get in later.
For now, she is going all by herself. (sigh)
After consulting with several of my friends who have treaded this territory before, we were told by every one of them that it would be better to send her alone than to not send her at all. I hope we made the right decision. We think we did.
