Exciting News!!!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

This is gonna be a quick little blog, but I had to share some exciting news...

My son is currently in college at K-State here in Kansas, but applied for a paid internship through the Disney College program a couple of months ago. He had a phone interview about 2 weeks ago, and was told that they'd let him know in about a month.

Well, today he was notified that he was accepted into the program!!! That's right, my 21-yo son is gonna get paid (and college credit) to spend 6 months at the "happiest place on earth"! LoL He'll be working as an attractions cast member... most likely being trained to run the rides, but possibly also being involved w/ some of the "characters" that wonder about the attractions area.

I'm so proud of him... and excited for him! I can only imagine how he's feeling!

    Woo hoo Sonja that is awesome. I was going to do that while in college but never got the chance. I have a couple of friends that did and had an amazing time.

    emoticon that is so exciting - you must be so proud of him! What a wonderful opportunity. We have sons the same age -- my son just moved out this weekend in with my brother in St. Louis. First time he's been out on his own.
