Well, things have really taken off! Sometimes you plant a seed, a bare inkling of an idea, and the next thing you know... WOW!
Not only has Shaw TV Red Deer contacted us regarding Josiah's dream to go to Drumheller, Alberta, they'll be interviewing him while he'd there. The Drumheller Mail will be interviewing Josiah and his mom, Lisa, during their stay as well. And the Drumheller Valley Times may have an article out about little Dino-Man this week. Watch for it! There'll be an online version as well.
Well, the seed was planted. All I was hoping for was maybe someone in Victoria would pick up the story and run it...so that more people would stop by Lisa and Josiah's lemonade and dino-cookie stand. I never had any idea that it would take off like this!
Now for the most exciting news....the Ellen Degeneres Show requested a video of Josiah after seeing one of my press releases. Lisa and Josiah recorded a cute video with Josiah describing the different dinos and their habits. Who knows?? There could be a trip to the US in their future!
AND...Josiah will be meeting his idol, Dr. Philip Currie--esteemed paleontologist and curator of the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. The museum has wonderfully donated some exciting activities to Josiah and his family. Dr. Currie's name is familiar to young Josiah. He has the world-renowned dino-hunter's book and videos.
Lisa and Josiah will be in Drumheller in mid-July. This will be the trip of a lifetime for little Dino-Man...and I'm so glad that I got to be a small part of this journey...that I got to plant the seed, watch it grow....and that for once...no weeds!
Project Drumheller shows that dreams really do come true...if you want them badly enough and if you're open to gifts from the universe.
