Getting Closer

I think this may be the first time I've stopped to sit all break...because I've been working on the project. Now don't get me wrong, I love working on it but it has been a bit stressful. Last week, Grace and I had the meeting with the principle of our school and the St. Jude representatives of Michigan. It went very well and we also brought the representatives by our mentors room so that they could meet. It was such an amazing experience and we are still over the moon about how exciting everything is getting. I'm the one who freaks out half the time because I want everything to be perfect, while Grace, sits there and laughs because she has it all under control. We're a good balance for each other though because sometimes you have to be a little worried!! Anyways, during the meeting we mostly talked about the way things will be run and all of the qualifications that we'll need in order to make this event a success. We have a proposal set and ready to be presented to possibly the School Board in order for new ideas to be heard. After all, this project isn't about winning. It's about learning from a new experience and learning how to get back up after you fall. So far, we've fell around five times and I never knew that I would learn how to get back up so quickly. Thank you 20 time, for teaching me the ropes....I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!

Getting ready.....

Next week on Tuesday, Grace and I are having a meeting with the principle of our school and the St. Jude representatives of Michigan!!! We couldn't be any more excited to meet the people we've been working with for a while. Talking face to face with the representatives would really benefit this fundraiser. We plan to talk about basically everything we've done so far.....which is a lot!!! Anyways, I've been researching things to do at an event like this. I really want to make this fun for everyone who comes and have all types of activities to do. We have a few ideas in mind but none have really caught our interest. I can't wait to see how this event turns out...it's what I think about more than half the time! We have spent every day on this project, outside of school and in school on Friday's. We are definitely dedicated...to the point where we fall asleep next to the computer. We'll be updating on what happens at the meeting!
