Go, Stacia!

Have I shared much from Women's Conference and the words God spoke to Stacia, Allie and me? Probably not. 

Stacia has been joking about all the college things coming her way, and promptly throwing out the invites. However, after conference, her trajectory has been adjusted and now she realizes college is in her future. 

I got home to find her and a pile of mail. Seems she got a keychain, two letters and a booklet from the UA system. 

"Yeah, I'm sure it's another form letter come on, but this time they sent a keychain." 

The letters said she has been selected as a UA Scholar. She has earned a $12,000 scholarship to any of the colleges in the UA system.  

She insisted again it was a come on. I told her we've graduated four seniors in Alaska and never received this before. 

The thing convincing her it was a come on is it said she is in the top 10% of her Junior class. 

"How would they even know or compare that?" 

Um...must be you're in the top at IDEA/Galena School district? 

I think it's doubtful she'll find a program at UA - but she's much more interested in the mail now that she knows it may contain financial benefits. LOL 

Tuesday Morning with the Boys

 The boys were not impressed with the snow. It meant cold. Too cold to go for a walk or play outside. The little boys quickly adjusted. Danny ran for the game closet when he saw me walk in the door this morning. 

Try as I might, I could not get across the idea of picking ONE duck out at a time. The object of the game seems to be Bachan placing all the ducks in the pond and Little Guy and Danny knocking them all out as quickly as possibly. It's a fun game. 

Next up with the ole' jump off the dinosaurs back onto Benny's bed game. I loved how they were so quick to help each other jump. ::snort:: 

I left watching the boys to put in four hours at the food co-op where I am a member. We sorted and delivered loads of organic food and produce...

Back at home I was beat and I think I went to bed fairly quickly. NO, first there was dinner and an episode of the Amazing Race. Do NOT spoil this for us. We are in Season 33 and love watching Penn and Kim Holderness of The Holderness Family compete.
