I get offers from my kids school for her to all kinds of things. One was a trip to England that would cost and arm and a leg. One was for a trip to DC for a forensic thingy during the summer $1600 and a bunch of othes that she's been recomended for that she doesnt really have an interest in but would look good on college apps in a few years.
I get a letter today but this was in the school E-news letter about an awesome program for future Jounalilst. Thats what she wants to be. the program is held at princeton and totally paid for. including travel to Princeton (granted i'm kinda close) Plus its princeton t hats like her 5th choice schoool. The program is for low income familes and we fall in the guidelines. and i'm going thru the whole letter getting really excited. GPA has to be 3.5 got it. has to have an interest in Journalism she has that in spades. Has to have a teacher recomend her. I'm sure they all would. She has to be a Junior. uggggg oh well she can apply in 2 years.
