A few new things


1) Merci is officially a 1st grader, as of yesturday morning. This year Merci started a new school, (same school system as last year) but showed no signs of being nervous or scared. We did get to meet her teacher and visit her classroom last week, so I am sure that helped. Her new teacher seems 100% better than her teacher last year, I am hoping this makes a huge difference in her learning and behavior! I was really excited to find out her friend Clarissa (her grandparents live next door) is in her class, so that really helped also.

2) Donna is officially going back to school=) I have been in the process for sometime and finalized all the paperwork and finacial aid stuff today! Yay me. I just felt like I needed a change, a challange, something for ME, so I figured this would be the best investment for the future! I am still very much undecided about what I want to do, but I declared Radiography as my major, but I have been thinking about teaching also, and Sonography and Sociology also. I have NO idea, I will be praying for guiadance. I think I want to be a social worker, that was my major at BW, I might want to work with adoptions, but my dream job is to be a midwife. So as you can see I am lost, I have no clue..LOL!!

3) Did I mention that Ethan threw a big piece of poop at me the other day??
Ethan was in the bathtub and I was in the bathroom getting ready, I see something out of the corner of my eye, I look down and see a big piece of poop on the floor...EEWWW! I screamed and laughed so hard. Ethan just kept looking at me and saying "ewe mommy, peep." I was horrified, but it is definatly something that needs to go in his baby book, and something that I will never forget!

PS Spell check is not working again, and it did take me 2 times to pass the English placement test=)

merci and donna are going back to school and ethan figured out how to fling poop. It looks like everybody is learning something new.

Bek said...

donna so excited for you! i was thinking about it and i can totally see u as a midwife. :) and i'm glad u can laugh about the poop flinging. thats a good sense of humor.

Autumn said...

oh, I'm so excited for you! I would love to go back to school, too, but this isn't the time for me. If you become a midwife, I will be SO jealous! ;) I could be your helper though. :) oh, I love birth!

ewww on the poop thing. you DO have a good sense of humor.

Donna said...

Just so you all know..I am doing classes online, forgot to mention that.

Autumn, we should be midwives together...someday ;)

Donna, that's great that you are going back to school. I'm so proud of you and Crystal both, this is the right thing to do, I believe. And that Ethan, wow he is just such a BOY, I can't imagine that it ever entered Merci's mind to do such a thing! And I agree with Bek that laughing about it shows a great sense of humour.

And oh, this much is clear. You can't go to school yourself and homeschool at the same time. Decision made!

Eww for ethan... Yay for school! It's good that everything seems on the up and up. You'll find some definite path; it just takes a while sometimes to decide.

Donna, I am so excited that you are taking some classes. I have started taking some classes online too. Nothing like what you are looking at doing. But I wish you the best. Seeking what God wants you to do is the best. Follow those dreams...
