The Uni Offers are in!

Ayden at the Melbourne Museum seeing if he was as tall as the tallest man... not quite

On Monday it was the day where I sat around feeling very anxious.  We had to wait until 4pm for the Uni offers to be released.  Ayden had a list of 10 engineering courses he selected and with his ATAR score and SEAS application we had no idea what he which one he would get an offer for.  If he was successful at Monash University it would be moving out of home,  and giving up his part time job or RMIT would have him still living at home and commuting, at least for awhile.

We are so proud.  Ayden will be studying a double degree at Monash University in Environmental Engineering and in Science where he can learn for a career in addressing climate change and renewable energy. 

Ayden travelled to the uni today for an enrollment day and took the two trains and a bus to get there and only got a bit lost on campus.  He will need to find a new casual job (the old one are happy to give him shifts anytime he is back in Ballarat) and move to the uni residences by 11 February.  Not long to get everything organised!  Maya already has her eye on his bedroom..

It is such an exciting time for everyone. Glad Ayden's hard work is paying off for him.

Good Luck to Maya also. A new room may be a good thing to focus on as the dynamic changes with Ayden living on campus.

Ohh I know that anxious feeling. Well done Ayden - I'm doing the happy dance for you. You worked so hard and deserve such a wonderful opportunity. Enjoy the independence from home and all that uni offers.

A great achievement Ayden, you should be proud of all the hard work you've done to get there. I wish you lots of luck and, more importantly, lots of fun at Uni!
You would be over the moon Rachel and Matt, great parents, with great kids.

Well done for Ayden, but this must be not so easy on his mum... It must be at least strange to see your oldest leaving the house.
