Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Now that the older boys are in high school, college is on our minds quite a bit. Trust me, they’ve already heard PLENTY from us about the need to get really good grades and have a good record to show colleges when they apply. Essentially, they need to build skills and a resume even at this young age. It blows my mind sometimes to think about it.

I think it’s easy for us as parents to be pretty unsure of what colleges really are looking for in students nowadays. Thankfully the good folks at The Best Colleges have put together an infographic that can help. Now that I know what areas are most important to colleges, I can strategize with the boys and help them build the best plan for them.

Oy. College. I’m not ready.
