Wednesday, May 12, 2010

We were not allowed to say a thing about this until today.  Today is the first meeting of Ontario's Education Minister's Student Advisory Council.  Thousands of students across Ontario applied to this committee, and my son Dana was one of 60 students selected to sit on this committee for the next year.  We came to Toronto for his first meeting at Queen's Park today... and I am just busting with pride.  Today, the Press hears about who has been selected, so I am allowed to talk about it.  Dana received an interview call to confirm his selection, weeks ago.  The only person allowed to know about it was his principal.  I was busting at the seams.  How was I going to keep this to myself?  Whew.  I feel like a great pressure has been removed, now that I can bust loose.  LOL  Well... ME.. a Scrapbooker... forgot my camera.  HOW COULD I DO THAT?????   So.. excuse this picture.  It's taken with my hubby's blackberry, in our hotel room this morning.  When we checked in, there was a message for Dana saying... Welcome!  Please meet your host ... etc.. in the lobby, at 8am.  So.. 8am... off he went, dressed to the nines... confident.  At least... seemingly so.  At 17, they can be full of bravado. He's meeting with the Minister now, and I cannot wait to see him in order to hear all about what has happened today.  

Anyway... just wanted to share my happy news with you all today. Thanks for *listening*.  :)
