Jessica Begins University with Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #209!

We have had such a busy day getting Jessica registered for university and getting her accommodation organized. Some of the South African universities are still struggling to get back on track after the riots from last year. At Jessica's university, the administration building was burned down. The university also shut down early before the end of the year exams to protect the staff and students. This put everything behind schedule.

We never stopped inquiring about Jessica's online application, but we kept getting the same kind of response that we should not worry and we would eventually be contacted. In actuality, the online applications are a new thing and they still need to work out the kinks in the system. They have been running behind in getting students processed. In our case, important forms that Hubby submitted were missing. Thankfully, he spoke to enough people to finally get the ball rolling. It turns out her classes begin on Monday!

We could really see God helping us get over a bunch of hurdles to make it possible for her to move in on Sunday and be ready to start her classes on Monday. She is studying Accountancy with her goal to become a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) šŸ˜‰. We had a lot of friends and family praying and we are thankful for that!

Now we will have two kids at university! Jeremiah is in his third year at Rhodes in Grahamstown. It's about a twelve hour bus ride as long as there are no delays. He's studying Information Systems (IS) and Sociology. Jessica's university is only an hour's drive away. This was her choice, but we're quite happy about it.

The photos I'm sharing were all taken at my in-laws' beach house during our December holiday. Jessica adored the cats when they were little kittens. She was a little girl herself, at the time, and spent hours playing with them. Both cats are now old. Tammy is at the vet tonight and on a drip. Please keep the old girl in prayer. And Timmy, we've been told, has the sniffles.
