Just a quick note, because I'm bursting ...
DD got her acceptance letter from the school we wanted her to go to for high school!!
They said just lovely things like:
"You have done well with your schooling, and I believe you are well prepared."
We had to provide at least three letters of recommendation, and they mentioned a bit from those (as we didn't see them). They said, in part:
"(DD) is highly motivated and attempts to excel in all of her assigned work."
And our agility instructor mentioned DD's "...committment to excellence and her joy in working with new handlers."
So we're going to have a new adventure ahead of us come August. We're both excited and a little nervous.
