Another semester is finished. I didn't get into the Rad Tech program this year so I have t0 wait until next February to apply. But, to fill the time I have decided to also try and get a degree in American Sign Language. I am excited to get that started in the fall. Ethen get out of school next week and again we have a busy summer ahead of us. The first of June Ethen and I are headed to Jr. Camp. In Jesus Name this is the year he will get the Holy Ghost. I am doing the snack bar, so I will get to go and have fun too. I have just placed an offer on a house so toward the end of June hopefully I will be moving. Then in July we are headed to Texas to go to the ranch. We will be back within the first couple weeks of August and then it's back to school. Sometimes I think the school year is more relaxing than summer break. I will get on sometime, hopefully soon, and add some pictures. If my offer is accepted on the house I will be posting some pictures of that.

I know it has been a long time since I have updated this blog, but I have been crazy busy. I finished my "freshman" year of college. I am now technically a "sophmore". Emilee turned 3 last month. She is getting so big. The kids and I just got back from Seaworld San Diego. We had so much fun. I will try to do better keeping things updated in the future. So here are some pictures of Seaworld.

Wow, another year of school. Ethen is now in the second grade. I can not believe how fast he is growing. I have heard other parent commenting on this phenomena of children growing up in the blink of an eye..... they really do. Ethen was sooooo cute his first day of school. He looks adorable in his uniform. I have been blessed to be able to send him to Bethel again this year. Emilee will be three in December and goes to Kiddie Korral, so she sees "Bubba" everyday. I have been told she has climbed under the fence a few times to so see Bubba.

I am now in my second semester at college. I again am taking 12 units. It is difficult with the kids, but we are working it out. I am taking intermediate algebra, (thank goodness it is my last math class) computer, (which is a gen. ed class) and biology. In the spring I will be able to apply to the radiology program. If anyone reading this has a minute or two, pray for me that I can get in right away. They say there is a 1-3 year waiting list. I really don't want to wait that long. LOL.

Also, Granny is doing well. She just finished her second round of chemo. She has an infection in her mouth, sort of like thrush, and she has days where she is really tired. We are all thanking the Lord that she hasn't been sick to her stomach. God is so good!!! I appreciate everyone who is praying for her. If anyone "deserves" healing, it is her. She is such a good, godly woman who has always been there for ANYONE who needed her. She has been the emotional and spiritual pillar in our family. I don't think she will ever be able to grasp the true depth of my profound love and respect for her.

Until next time. Thank you all for stopping by and reading about me and mine.

Things have been so very crazy lateley. Granny had her gallblader removed and during that process it was discovered she has lymphoma and will be starting chemo at the end of the month. Doctors are positive that they will be able to take care of it... but I know that God is in controll and am claiming healing in Jesus name.

The kids and I are going to Sacramento at the end of the month. We are looking forward to visiting with Robyn and Doyle. Ethen is excited to go fishing with him. I plan on doing some shopping for Ethen's school close and Emilee some play clothes for school.... which I know Robyn will absolutely LOVE. Anyone who knows Robyn knows she absolutely adores shopping. LOL.

As summer comes to a close. I am getting ready for school again also. I have just two more semesters before I can apply to the rad tech program. I am antsy to get into the program. The first semester I will have clinicals. That will make my education real. Being able to have some hands on training will make it feel like I getting closer to my goal.

Untill next time. Love you all. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Caribbean Cruise

Ethen and I just g0t back from our cruise. We had a blast. Ethen pretty much wore me out on the first day. We discovered every nook and cranny on the ship that day. The ship we were on, the Carnival Liberty, had a miniature golf course, a basketball and volleyball court, and a waterslide. He was sooo excited. We had three days in port and three days at sea. Each day at sea, he went to the kids club and played with the kids. Each day the kids club closed from 12-2, so I took him out to the pool and he wend up and down the waterslide for two hours. He loved it. I took some really cute video of that. Every day we were in port, I had planned shore excursions. The first stop we made was Ocho Rios, Jamaica. There, we took a Timeran from the docks to Dunns River Falls. It is a 920 foot water fall. There, we joined about 15 other people and climbed up the middle of the waterfall. It was so cool, we were actually in the waterfall climbing up it. Afterwards, we took the Timeran back to the docks, then I took him down to the beach. He played in the surf for a couple of hours. Next, we stopped in Grand Cayman, in the Cayman Islands. There, we went a dolphinariam and turtle farm. At the turtle farm we saw lots of giant sea turtles and baby sea turtles. Ethen was able to hold several of the baby sea turtles. Then, we went right across the street and were able to get into the water with a dolphin. We were able to touch it several times as it swam by. Then, one at a time, the dolphin swam up to us and we held it and gave it a kiss, then shook its fins. Ethen absolutely LOVED that. At first he was a little scared, but he got over it very quickly. Last place we stopped was Roatan, an island off of the coast of Honduras. There, we went to a bird and monkey sanctuary. We held a giant Macaw, it sat on our shoulder. Then, we went into the monkey area. Ethen had one of the monkey sit right on top of his head. Several times the monkeys would climb up his arm and sit on his shoulders. Another of the monkeys placed a handful of sunflower seeds on top of his head and then just sat there and ate them.... right off the top of his head.
We were so ready to get back home, though. I missed Emilee sooooooooooo much. It was hard to be away from her for so long. Ethen and I needed some time though. He has been having a difficult time. Well, I am including some pictures. I hope you enjoy.
