"Proud Parent" that's what our name tags said at the scholarship presentation on Thursday evening. Of course they were right, we are proud parents. We were also quite tired parents too after the six hour drive down and then dealing with Sydney traffic which we are not used to.
Of over 1000 applicants, there were 49 scholarships awarded. All of the scholars who spoke on Thursday were so eloquent and appreciative and from what I could tell, deserving too. It was great.
And just because it isn't fair of me to post pictures of Tim here when he doesn't like having his picture taken, here is one of us together. Apart from the professional photograph taken at the beginning of the night, I think this might be the only one of me, talking to the girls on a borrowed phone.
Clydesdale Room at the Sydney Showground. The horses weren't there of course but there was still plenty to look at with all of the keepsakes and horse paraphernalia on display. A fitting place in the city for a presentation of rural scholarships for sure.
As a bonus, the food was delicious too.
This proud parent is now off to take Grace to her piano exam and her nerves are a mess.
