Bound for Britain!!
Well, it's official! Our Shelb is bound for Britain!
Soooo excited for her. She was going to try to fool me when I got home from getting the kids from school. She had a plan to tell me she didn't make the cut (there were 40 kids who wanted to go and only 10 could go...after a lengthy process of teachers going through applications and essays)...but she couldn't hold out that long. She texted me the good news! lol! She's so funny. She was soooo excited. So very proud of her. She worked hard writing that essay and coming up with ideas for fundraising. In 8 months she will be living a week of her life in England...living with Bourne students and going to school with them and touring a country her mama has never even been to! (slightly jealous!) But so awesome for her! I have never seen her so excited about something. She is going to learn so much from the trip!
