Last Day of School

Today is the last day of school. In the fall Jenna will be a sophomore JP will be an 8th grader Jacob will be a 1st grader and Jonathan will be in his final year of pre-k but will be in a half day program rather than a full day program as the school has eliminated full day in order to enroll more children by making it 2 half day sessions.

Work is going great. I really enjoy my job and it really doesn't feel like a job.. It is very physical and consists of constant running but I just love it so much! I have been there just over a month now and am amazed that I know all the residents names and what rooms they are in. When I first started that was the biggest worry for me... Seems it shouldn't have been such a worry :)

Jack has tubes in both ears now due to recurring ear infections and constant fluid begins his ear drums that would never drain. He did really well for it all and only had about 45 minutes of crying with coming out of anesthesia.

Jacob and Jonathan will be heading to Wisconsin in a few weeks to visit their Grandparents for a little while. The boys are really looking forward to it!

I have scrubs to wash for work so I better get busy! I am working 6 nights in a row... Tonight is night 2. I am covering for 2 co workers.. This was my weekend off but one had a wedding to go to and the other had a church retreat in TN she wanted to attend.... So I said I would cover for them :) Today is payday and also a mandatory meeting.

Trying to set up my phone for mobile blogging again. Could blog more often if I get it set up again!

Go Me!

I had Lab last night... our Lecture instructor passed our midterm sheet with our midterm exam grade on it to our lab instructor to give us last night. I was pleased to see I got a 99 on my exam :)

2 more lectures, 2 more labs, then spring break, then final exam, and then clinicals start! April 2nd will be the first clinical.

I am supposed to go get my scrubs, shoes, watch, stethoscope and blood pressure cuff on the 19th.

I need to go get my nursing assistant student ID badge from the college before clinicals also.

I have another paper to write, it is about Alzheimers and it is on a movie we watched called Iris. I also have to study for the last quiz we have coming up this Tuesday and I need to prepare for final exam.

I did my CPR certification the other night. I did it here in town at the fire station. I want to get certified for first aid also.

I am just busy busy! Looking forward to the point when I can actually WORK!

Good Morning StarShine

The Earth Says Hello!!

Where have I been?

well.... busy with school, kids, photography, keeping house, helping friends, etc...

School is going great! Midterm exams are coming up on Tuesday so I will be busy studying this weekend. And of course finding time to clean house and shoot some pictures!

The kids are all doing really well in school.

Jenna is in Drivers Ed and will get her learners permit in April. She has already asked if she can drive when we go to Wisconsin... boy will I be a bundle of nerves!!!

Jacob is rockin the whole reading thing! One of the teachers stopped me after school yesterday to tell me what a great reader he is. I have also been stopped by teachers telling me what a great artist he is and just to let me know what a great kid he is. He sure does make a good impression at school lol. He reads his homework books to us every night but last night he went ahead and read Hop on Pop to me after he was done with his homework. I was so proud of him! Such a smart kid! And have I mentioned how he rocks the video games? He beat Call of Duty 5 in 2 days! He beat it before Nick could LOL he has also beat Halo 3.... in 1 day... which made JP made since it was his game... Oops LOL He has beat too many games to count! He is currently working on Mario Galaxy... that should be more of a challenge for him.

Jonathan is doing great in Pre-k. He wants to learn to read so badly! He is just starting to get into video games.. .He likes Star Wars Legos, Indiana Jones Legos, and Star Wars the Clone Wars (Wii version with the light sabers.

JP is going to be playing baseball this year. He is also doing very well in school. He is also playing electric guitar and loves skateboarding. Oh and he is also doing track.

Jack is still a very sweet and funny little guy! He cracks us up everyday!

OK... how about some pictures?

I need to set the table

I moved our dining room table again. It is now in what was the sitting room... though no one ever sat in there! I guess I better go get the table set for supper!

I have a fire going

I was actually able to get one going! Usually I have to wait until Nick gets home from work so he can start the fire for me. Go me!

a few house photos

The kitchen... obviously lol. This is half of it. It isnt finished yet, eventually we want to get new cabinets, counter tops, floor, appliances...
