Great News



We found out late last night that our son, Christopher, was accepted at UCLA!



We are so proud and happy for him!   What a great reward for 4 years of hard work!
There are still other schools we have yet to hear from, but this was his Number 1 choice.  I think it's safe to say it's going to be a good weekend :)

Congratulations on your son getting into UCLA! Thanks for checking me out. Such a small world isn't it? My sister lives in San Mateo and works in San Francisco, maybe you've passed her on the street, what a thought!

great news ... I know you wanted him close to home ... but DARN if he had landed at Northwestern we would've become bosom ( like the photo) buddies.
