Meeting the Governor

Here I am doing something I never dreamed I would have the opportunity to do--I am meeting the Governor of Kansas, Sam Brownback.  Well, I actually had met him  once before--before he was elected on his bus tour around the state, but I never dreamed I would get to meet him in his ceremonial office in the State Capital building.    I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet him, get to talk about my platform, and thank him for my appointment to the State Rehabilitation Council.
I also had the amazing opportunity to be a proud parent, while my daughter received her Read Across Kansas award certificate from the governor and state librarian.  What an honor!!!  This will be a day not quickly forgotten.
