    oh, so sorry, 'neato. That was the letter we got in January.

    Still got my fingers crossed for Kriston and all others this month...

    Ours came...and DS6 is in!

    Naturally, I'm happy! It's bittersweet though, with 'Neato's news...

    I knew it was a matter of time until all this waiting got its own thread!! I pretended to work a little today to make the time go faster. Next year we are thinking of homeschooling and I have to find other distractions for the wait...

    Our mail did not run yet, but we have to leave soon for afterschool activities, which will make my wait even longer...

    Here's hoping tomorrow is the day for everyone (except for me there is still hope today, LOL)

    Great news, Kriston. Since we have not applied yet (hoping the Explore scores will help us decide if we should) I was curious what the next step with them is? Once you have been accepted, what is usually the immediate and long term help mentioned?

    Sorry 'Neato, she was so close, but hopefully the next test will be better suited for her.

    Well, first I have to fill out a 6-page enrollment form, so there are no immediate services yet...

    Maybe one of the "old hands" would be better to answer the question than I, since I just opened the envelope literally minutes ago! grin

    Although I'd prefer to send the real thing... here's a BIG slice of cyber chocolate cake for Incog and Kriston. The two of you are wonderful mothers with amazing kids.

    I second that about 'Neato. And if she wants, she can have my cake.

    Now THAT'S love! smile

    Congratulations to Kriston's DS!

    Incogneato, it sounds like "no" isn't really, "no". They are just waiting for the right data...
