a whole week off

that right i have a whole week off from school.... too bad i have to work.

hurricane IKE made the fall semester longer, so instead of having almost a month to catch my breath i get 8 whole days. (yeah me) i got an A in the other 2 internet classes i took. internet classes are way different than actually going and listening to a lecture. i learned i lot about myself and what kind of student i can be. if only i had found out at the beginning of my college career. LOL

anyway, i think i will take this week to rest, master golf on the wii and maybe even plan an activity for our ward at church. ( thats my new calling BTW )

Jess :-P

Good 'ole pumpkin carving

today i got a wild hair and decided to let the kids carve pumkins for halloween.
they have asked every year and i always come up with some excuse not to. so this year i thought it would be nice to try it. they each pick out their own pumkin at the store. then they decided on the design.

i think they had fun. it was messy and alot of work on my end but all in all we'll prolly do it again next year. i must say they turned out pretty good too.

jess :-P

so this morning around 8 i got a text message from art. caleb SHOT is first deer.

Caleb was so excited. Baileigh went on and on about how we were gunna have deer meat. i'm so proud of my little deer hunter that he got a deer on his first real trip out.

must post GOOD news . . .

i guess the whole point of a blog is to post updates, news (good), and just plain venting.

so with that said i must do some of those very things.

UPDATE - the kids are back at school and very excited about the latest fund raiser for school. so if anyone out there wants some very yummy cookie dough (hint hint).

NEWS - today i was off from work and spent most of the day studying. yep i did just that and it did help me to take a quiz in the much dreaded pathophysiology class. (i got a 86) it made me smile, especially that i was freaking out and the class average was 67.

VENTING - well, since my last post was about how much i disliked my Internet class i think i will say something nice. I GOT A 86 !!! now this is just a quiz but a step in the right direction for me.

thanks for the words of encouragement from my honey, friends, and fellow bloggers. it means a lot.
