This Girl

This girl has got it together.  She's starting up her 4th semester at GCC on a scholarship.  She has all her schooling mapped out down to the classes she will take each semester until she can apply to MidWestern for the Pharmacy program.  She will have an A average when she applies.

She's worked at the same place for four years and worked her way up the ladder.  She currently works customer service at Fry's.  She bought herself a car just before Christmas.  She's letting Emily make payments to her while Emily drives her old car.  She helps Isabelle with her homework and takes her on hikes and to lunch for her birthday.  She gave me a PotteryBarn giftcard for my birthday and a fabulous purse for Christmas.
AND she cooked me an omelet for breakfast this morning!

I think she's turning out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

YES I completely agree. I love Amanda. Ever since I first heard her jabber on and on in a language all her own when she could barely even stand, I knew she was a very bright and special individual. Good job raising such a great girl!

It's too bad we are relative or I would want her to marry Jake and provide a good living for him!

She is pretty amazing, and if I do say so myself, I think she always has been!

Yes, little Amanda that I used to call when all of you lived in Denver, just to hear her sing songs to me. I still love to hear her sing whenever I get the chance. She does have it all together for a girl her age, or any age. We are very proud of her, and love her lots and lots.

Amanda is amazing!

Nellie, I don't know who you are, but that comment totally cracked me up!
