Here We Go!

Finally got the news late this afternoon -- I got into the program!

Eating Fire
Starting in just 2 weeks, I'll be starting a one-year leadership-training and interdisciplinary study program, as a parent of a child with special needs, at a prestigious university center for developmental disabilities.

Leap of Faith
I even have preliminary arrangements in place for a babysitter to help shake free the hours that I'll need to get this extra set of spinning plates into motion.

Flying with Uncle Schnirelmann
WE. CAN. FLY!!!

PERFECT photo accompaniment! I'm VERY happy for you - 'cause I know you wanted this.

I'm just hoping the blog plate stays spinning. I may have a little Joy dependency thing going on here.

Thanks for the cheers, all!

Barbara, I may have to blog-budget at least a little -- perhaps I might not be able to burst forth with the kind of sprees I sometimes do of daily postings. My feeling, though, is that the blog is such an important part of what brought me to this point, an expression of one aspect of parent-leadership in action -- perhaps I can wangle some form of program-credit for reflecting at Elvis Sightings on my program experiences? There's enough of an independent-study vibe about this thing to make that feel possible, but we shall see.

Yay! You should definitely try to get some credit for the blog. You just need to pitch it the right way.

Congrats! :)

Not at all surprised. The people who interviewed you were no doubt dancing with joy at having acquired such a gem for their program.
