She made it, She made it, SHE MADE IT!!! :)


Top 'o the morning to ya!  I'm Irish, and don't have a card for today - ACK!  Scandelous! :)  But I do want to wish all of you a most blessed St. Patrick's Day today!

And share with you some most wonderful news!!!!!!    Finally our "luck" has turned around and in the midst of choas and upheaval, we received two letters in the mail this week from dd14 trying out for high school next year ...... yes, trying out, lol - I get asked a lot why do you apply to high school, doesn't everyone go?! They are speciality schools for voice/choral performance and you have to apply, wait an excruciating couple of months, and then stalk the mailman the week of the 15th!

Our Chrissy received not one .... but  two acceptance letters to both high schools she applied for!  We are over to the top giddy and blessed and humbled!  Competetion was fierce - in one school alone, they had 9 openings of the 100's that applied - NINE!  We could not be more excited and at the same time, help her decide which path to chose and which school would better fit her ... still much praying left to do but we know He will lead us to where we are supposed to be :)

And I remember the wonderful wishes you sent to us as she applied and how nervous we were, and all the cheers, prayers, and wonderful wishes you sent our way meant the world to me!  I can't thank you enough for your support, friendship and love!   *MuAh!*

Stay tuned! Celebration candy soon to follow!  Thanks for letting me share this blessed news - a Lucky Day indeed!!
