“I am not going to the University of Washington,” my daughter said today as we drove past the campus and to our photo shoot. “I’ve already toured the campus and I decided I will attend Cornell. ”

I was shocked. “When did you visit UW and how did you hear about Cornell?”

“My dad took me.” she said matter of factually, like she knows and I do not. “Did you know Cornell is an ivy league school?” she asked.

“No, I didn’t. How do you know these things already? You are only thirteen.”

She smiled at me, “You know how I have trouble falling asleep at night. I get these urges to Google things. I Google things like college.”

feeling proud with Sapphire Garibay.
