    Does it come by fed ex? I thought just regular USPS. Wow, a class act! Anyway, our son is also waiting to hear some news from USMMA and we are anxiously awaiting. His admissions officer has been very helpful and has been very positive about his chances of an appt. (or at least LOA) Will update all as soon as we know as we are sure all of you will for us!

    Fed Ex

    Yes it came FedEx. Aaron was very excited and was home when it came. He however did not call us figuring it would wait till we came home. He still has not told some of his teachers or karate instructor. Kids, go figure.

    Thanks for the info. Son had phone interview with admissions counselor this evening. From what I heard, he did well. Now we wait some more :) If he gets something it would be LOA because he still has to get through the medical waiver process...the rest is complete.

    He is in public school. I said pending graduation so that there would be no slacking pring of Senior year. I know what Senior year is like. We are all thrilled that the wait is over. Now we can relax at least a little

    LOL I had forgotten the photo of the 5000 calorie chocolate thing was posted there. That was actually my birthday cake & yes.... it was YUMS!

    No one else in the world could have better crusty old wog pirates for cheerleaders than KP. CGA cheerleaders were nice and all but "our" guys meant business. Glad you enjoyed the photos!
