Sharing Some More Excitement

 By Belinda

We had some great news on Friday. Tippy ((of chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream fame) was accepted into the Secondary Arts Program at Huron Heights Secondary School this fall. The website describes it as: A four-year intensive arts program for artistically talented students in York Region.  

Tippy had to put together a portfolio and audition for a space. There were 48 applicants for about 20 spaces. Brenda was intensely stressed!!! Tippy had a quiet calm. When I talked to her after she heard the news and asked her about the audition, she said with a smile, "I was pleased with my work."

We are so happy for her! And it called for a family celebration with ice cream cake. 

Chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake of course!

I'm only a viewer via blog - but boy - did I ever get excited for Tippy - what a marvelous opportunity! Yes - I know one is not supposed to get jealous - but I am. So glad you celebrated such an accomplishment. Golly - just getting a portfolio together is such a big job! Boy - when I was in school it was a choice between typing, cooking, sewing or woodwork. Glad some things have changed for the better. You might show us some of her work sometime!! Congrats!

Hi Anonymous, I will ask her for some of her current work!God has opened this door--we all see his hand every step of the way in her life journey. It is a wonderful, wonderful opportunity. Tippy has had other struggles, been picked on and left out at school but God blessed her with wonderful teachers at her elementary school (a small country school Sir William Osler, in Bradford) a passion and gift in art.
