To say we’re proud of Erin would be an understatement but she continues to stretch the bounds of what any parent could hope for. On Wednesday she got The Letter. That would be the letter from the National Merit organization informing her that she had been named a semi-finalist.

Woo Hoo!

That was the last thing to fall into place that will lead to some primo financial aid. We still have to dot some I’s and cross some t’s but that was the big one.

She got called to the principal’s office which for her could only have meant one thing plus the other smart kids pulled out of the calculus class pretty much told the tale.

We already got an invite to a dinner on homecoming night. Erin gets to go out on the field at halftime and is none too thrilled about not being able to sit with her friends during the game.

Good news indeed.
