We officially began our college search yesterday by taking a tour of the University of Kentucky campus. It is a very large and beautiful campus. And of course it gets bonus points for being in the SEC!!
We were given lots of great information about the college application process and everything that UK offers its students. After the information session, Rich was ready to enroll himself. Especially when he saw the list of restaraunts on campus (including 4 Starbucks) and found out that the dorm rooms have cable & wi-fi. We finish out our visit to the University of Kentucky tomorrow with the Sunday Showcase Football Camp. This will give Christian an inside look at the UK coaching staff and football program.
I'm excited and nervous about this chapter of our lives. We have a lot of work to do over the next year as we evaluate schools, athletic programs and scholarship options. However, I know that as we seek God's guidance, he will give us the wisdom needed to make the right choice for our family.
At this point we don't know if that will be a secular or Christian college, D1 2 or 3, in-state or across the country. There are so many options that it can easily become overwhelming. We're trusting God to lead us in His direction for Christian's future.
We want to be sure that our choices reflect our desire to glorify Him and not ourselves. We each have our own ideas for what we think would be the ideal place for Christian to continue his education, but noone knows God's plan like He does. I'm excited to walk this journey discovering God's plan along the way.
No matter which college he ends up attending, it will not change how I feel about the SEC. It will always be superior to every other conference.
