    THANK YOU KPENGINEER! YOUR WORDS OF WISDOM WORKED!.. This passed weekend we as a family moved on to Plan "B". Our DS signed the papework for VMI and the check went into the mail at 9:00am this morning (after I checked my DS's portal) Still "HOLD". I called my sister at 11:30am to tell her that our DS was going to VMI (her son is graduating this May) she was telling me what to expect and what hotels to book and when. I had tears in my eyes when my DS and his sister walked into my place of work. My daughter said she knows! He said what is wrong? I said I'm talking to Auntie about VMI told her you are moving forward with PLAN B. He said" NO PLAN "B" FOR ME ONLY PLAN "A". He Congressman had phoned him during PreCALC lol to congratulate him on becoming a "PRINCIPAL APPOINTEE". SHOCK! Logged on to his portal and the "HOLD" in now a "PRINCIPAL:shake: He has been asked to speak to the class of 2018 at Sundays Academy Day in Chicopee Ma. "DREAMS DO COME TRUE"!:yllol:

    That is a great story. Congratulations to your son on his accomplishment and your perseverance and support, etc that I'm sure helped him get through the process.

    Please sit firmly into your seats and buckle the latch securely - now the real roller coaster ride begins! Seriously, though congratulations and enjoy the rest of the journey!

    Congratulations to your whole family, and welcome to the KP family. Get connected with your state Chapter, make cookies for cookie cafe' and come back and visit this forum again while you are on this 4 year journey. Facebook is great, but there is NOTHING like talking to "our wise ones" here. They are filled with knowledge and support, which as a mom of a 1/c mid, I am still getting! Welcome aboard!
