Jade joined a club

Jade was invited to join a private astronomical club in the area. I never approched them about her before because they always seemed a bit 'snobbish' to me in the way they do things (very hush hush, secretive, gotta be a member to find out). But She was formally invited by the co-president and he offered to be her sponsor. He heard about her through Angel's ortho sureon. Brian, the sponsor, is the head radiology tech at the Children's Hospital Clinics.

Brian says he talked to everyone in the club at the last business meeting and they voted unanimously to invite her. She will be the only child in the group. There are lots of kids who hang out at the observatory with their parents, who are the members. But Jade will be the first kid who has parents as the 'hang outs', LOL. I guess she's something of a celebrity in the local astro-community because a) she is schooled at home under NASA's supervision, and b) because she already has a published paper on Cosmilogical Convergeances at age 8.

She's all excited. They already sent her a huge package of Hubble Photos and FAQ links. She's added the photos to her wall papering. LOL. her first official meeting is on Wed. We'll see how it goes.

OOopps, Baby's crying again, gotta go.

Peace,
