Children's Congress
« on: February 24, 2015, 10:00:53 AM »
I hesitated posting because I know a lot of people applied and not everyone can get chosen and I don't want anyone to feel bad, but y'all are family so I had to post.

We got the news yesterday that Kaelyn was chosen for Children's Congress. We are really excited.

 I sort of had a heads up because when we met with our Congressman the JDRF Advocacy rep told us to watch for the mail, then another JDRF rep I know kept asking if we had gotten any news yet, so I was stalking our post office.

When I told Annelis last night she was so happy for Kaelyn.  She said if she couldn't go, she was happy her friend gets to go.

Congratulations Kaelyn!!!!  That is so awesome!!!  <bclap> <bclap> <bclap>

Now I wish we would've applied so we could hang with y'all.

But it was really hot out when they started taking apps and I decided I wasn't ready for DC in July. lol That and I wanted to wait til Mack was in HS so I could put it on her transcript.
