C: K, Read this quote while finishing up the Andre Agassi book, Open,  and thought of you. It’s from a girl who is attending a school for underprivileged children that Andre had built in Las Vegas after ending his tennis career:

Determined not to repeat the mistakes of her parents, the girl pushes herself to succeed at Agassi Prep. “I won’t let myself down the way others have. It’s up to me to change the course of my future and I will never give up.”

This is a great and timely quote for you, as we get you re-enrolled in college and back on track……….

Love you,

C: It’s been a long time, and I apologize for the delay in writing, but some big things have happened. Life! OK, let me be more specific, K. moved in with E. and I. I always knew that this was a possibility, but after the holidays talking it out seriously with her, we decided to make it official. K. moved in the beginning of February, just as she turned 20! The agreement we all made was we would focus this next year on getting her a few solid jobs that paid well, have her focus on paying off all her bills from her schooling in California, and get re-enrolled into a local college.

K.’s moving in, and becoming a part of our family has been seamless. We sold her E.’s old Honda Accord, she went out and got herself three jobs – two waitressing and one with Abercrombie & Fitch, and just this Tuesday we got her registered for her fall classes at Middlesex Community College. She’s even going to take a summer math class to try and get ahead. We are very proud of her. She has juggled everything like the pro she is.

Yes, she gets mad when she can’t buy herself summer clothes, but trying to teach her the lesson that you pay off the people you owe before buying things for yourself. But, on the positive side, she has gotten the opportunity to model with Abercrombie, which has been a great experience.

So, I promise to keep you filled in from here on out, as the adventure continues to unfold.
