We interrupt the previously scheduled post...

...to bring you this very important message!

Darling Daughter entered a scholarship essay contest last month, and it seems that her entry was selected for the quarter-finals! Can I get a "woo hoo?"

She wrote about her experiences on her mission trip to New Orleans in 2008. Her writing is posted on the Family Travel Forum website and is available here for your reading pleasure! Yes, that's right, a simple click of the mouse will take you straight there.

Needless to say, she's extremely excited and has been bouncing off the walls for hours now! You would not even begin to comprehend the ear-splitting shrieks and screams she produced upon hearing that she was still in the running! She keeps saying, "I can't believe it!"

The final decision will be made some time next month. If you would take a moment to visit the link and read her writing (it isn't long, about 4 paragraphs), you can rate it (with stars...little gold ones!) and leave a comment. She'd be so thrilled! (Reading or rating her work doesn't interfere with the judging.)

Oh, and cross your fingers, toes and eyeballs and say a few prayers that she wins something! Because medical school is going to be costly and we'll need every dime she can earn, people!

Now...please come back tomorrow for a Halloween treat! Not candy corn.

Well written, DD... very well written. My trips with ASP (Appalachian Service Project) were similar and just as life-changing. I'm proud to "know" you.
