Abbi Chooses Auburn University

My sweet girl, Abbi, will
be graduating in May.

Deciding where to go to
college was not hard for her but
getting there was
quite an adventure!

The Worlunds have history
at AU.
Dave's parents met there,
fell in love,
were married,
and the rest is history.

Several of Dave's 
nieces and nephews
have graduated,
are graduating,
or are attending
Auburn University.

Abbi LOVES Auburn football.
This was an easy 
choice for her.
She was, however,
convinced her ACT score
was not good enough
to get admitted to AU.

So Abbi found another way -
a program at AU Montgomery
that allows you to go directly
to AU after one year
(providing your grades are good).

So we began that process in 
December and
she was admitted 
(even awarded scholarship)
to AU Montgomery.
The hitch was 
(of which we 
were not aware until January)
you must apply directly 
to Auburn University to
be considered for the
seamless program.

Long story short, 
Abbi applied, 
thinking she would be
admitted to the
"seamless" program
but God showed 
her favor and
she was accepted
to Auburn University!
(A good GPA & ACT score does
come in handy!)

Abbi said,
"God made it so I
would have to apply
to Auburn."
She is beyond excited
and reveling 
in God's grace -
unmerited favor - 
to her.

Her good friend, 
even decided
to go there, too,
and they will
be roomies!


We visited the campus
last week. 
Here are some
of my girl
and the campus.

Delight yourself
in the Lord,
and He will
give you
the desires of
your heart.
Psalm 37:4

Dawson Wade

This is my sweet, great nephew, 
Dawson Wade Higginbotham.

 I met him last week
when we went to 
Dauphin Island
for our vacation.

 His mom and big brother
came to see us at the beach
and I was able to babysit
while they played.

I was overjoyed to get to
capture these sweet images
while he slept.
 Isn't he an angel?

He favors my dad
in this photo. He also
favors my brother,
Barry, who would
have been thrilled
to know his grand
children if he had
lived.  Dawson
and his brother
Devin would have
loved their PawPaw
Barry, too!

I will forever love

awake, crying,
laughing. They
are the hope
that tomorrow
will come...and hopefully will be better than today.

so again,
I took
full advantage.
