Emily’s Prom   2 comments

My niece Emily sent me some pictures taken before her senior prom.  They’re pretty darned cute.  I especially like this one where she’s channeling Audrey Hepburn.


She’s certainly grown into a pretty girl.


Here’s a group shot.  Wouldn’t you know that the smallest girl would end up with the tallest guy?  He’s her friend Patrick.


Sister Sally phoned me a few weeks ago with Big News.  The good news?  Emily had been accepted into the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.  It has been ranked as the third best drama school in the world.  The bad news?  NYU is one of the most expensive universities in the country.  The other good news?  She has a full scholarship.  The other bad news?  She has to live in New York.

She has decided, after much thought, to take the chance of a lifetime.  She’s got a lot of talent, and a lot of experience already.  She’s played Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird, Jim Hawkins in Treasure Island, and Juliet in Romeo and Juliet already.  She’s a poised and mature young woman — and a lot braver than I would have been at her age!

Go for it, Emily!
