College Prep

So here we are, its 530 a.m., and Princess Penelope has to report to the ACT test center at 8 a.m. to take the test. This is one of those hurdles students face in getting into college. All colleges and universities in Alabama require the ACT.

I think I'm much more nervous about this test than she is! Granted, I'm just kind of going with the flow in front of her, with the whole "Don't worry too much, you can take it again if needed", but I know its a big deal. Its required for admittance to any of the schools we are considering. There are scholarships based exclusively on ACT scores. Other scholarships require certain scores, too. It would definitely be nice for her to pick up a few of those as that becomes free money for school.

So, here I sit, coffee in hand, hoping that today goes well. Wish us luck!


  1. I came upon your blog from I heart Publix and just had to comment on your post about your daughter and the ACT's. My oldest son is a freshman in college this year so I was sitting in your spot a year Just wanted to add my good luck and do a dance to the ACT gods for a great score!!

  2. Thanks so much!!!!! She feels okay about most of it, but the science had her really worried. Definitely not her strongest subject!
