The letter came today. Nicole got accepted in the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe. She starts in October. I was more excited then she was. I couldn't hold back the tears! I'm so happy for her. We both knew she could find many other things to do if she didn't get in. Not many people do get in on their first try. She could try again next spring. But praise God she doesn't need to try again! She is in...and now she can study art at one of the very best schools in Europe! Very, very cool!!!!
