Well Hello, Beautiful Eyes!

So... most people already know via Facebook ... but I have to announce on my blog as well ...

Kayla is the grand prize winner of Prevent Blindness America's Most Beautiful Eyes Contest!

I still don't think it has quite sunk in yet! She is the recipient of a $25K college scholarship (maybe that is the part that hasn't sunk in yet!)

And she will now be the face of the Star Pupil program for the next year!

What an amazing time we had in Chicago meeting the wonderful employees from PBA and the sponsors of the contest.

I know this post doesn't do our trip justice - I will have to do another post later; but we just got home last night and we're already off for a dolphin site-seeing trip this morning!



Thank you for sharing in our excitement!
