Today we bullied you into skipping basketball practice. There's no tournament this weekend. Daddy is making veal, and we all started chanting, "Skip it! Skip it!" You said we were bad influences, but I think you secretly liked it.
Yesterday you were accepted into college for the first time - Seton Hall. You had Daddy and Nonna on Facetime while you clicked on the email, letting you know that you got in. I cried. I think Daddy did too. I'm just so proud of you, Magoo. None of us were expecting to hear from colleges this early, so this was a pleasant surprise. After you found out you called Papa, then Zio and Goggy and the same time, then Titi, then Uncle Josh, then Michaela, Jules, Auntie Susan, and everyone else we could think of who had some hand in helping you become who you are today. Everyone was smiling through the phone - you could hear it. Now we wait for financial aid offers to come through to see where you'll end up this fall. No matter what, you worked hard for this and we can't wait to see what you do with the opportunities before you.
