So Close!

I just finished 2 more management classes covering concepts in Compensation, Employment, and Staffing.
The finals for these were challenging and I did not like it!
I received 'A's in both classes and my degree GPA is 3.79 so far.

I start a management policy class and Introduction to Chemistry class next week.

The chemistry class is to fill in a small credit deficit. I was able to pick any lower credit class to fill it in. I'm excited for it since I think R will be interested in hearing some of the concepts!

After these 2 classes I have 1 left!

I am so close to the end its crazy!

I am enjoying my week off with J and the boys, they are pretty awesome!

Oh Yeah!

We don't get a lot of these:
We hit the jackpot yesterday and so now we have a Snow Day!
No school for the boys and even work canceled for J...could it get any better?!

Picture Post!

Faux Mustaches are one of the coolest inventions!
I love how much fun they have with these, such goofballs!
L finally lost his 1st tooth! It takes FOREVER for my boys to lose their teeth! And once they do it takes forever to grow in their "Man-Tooth"
J built this bench earlier this summer. It is the perfect front porch seat, I love it. On summer nights he'd ask me to come sit with him and have a "5-Minute Date"
He also built me a cubby-shelf above my washer and dryer, so much room!J bought 2 turkey chicks this spring to raise for Holiday dinners this winter. Well, the tom turkey ate a ridiculous amount of food, so instead of waiting for Thanksgiving to butcher him we did it early. Here he is, all 27.5 pounds of him! I can every fall, my new food to try was salsa. I always forget to take pictures of what I do, and I always wish I had! I don't have a lot of storage space for all my jars. I found the perfect spot for me, all the kitchen cupboards are topped like this. I love seeing all the different colors and the foods in the jars up there.

Zoo & Fair 2010!

Quarters have been The Coolest thing this summer...gotta love quarter machines!

They were trying to get the camels to spit on them...
A fun rainy summer day at the zoo, best weather since all the animals are out playing and hardly anyone is there.
The mighty hunter!

My goodness I love these boys! This is one of my favorite pics!

The beginning of the month brought the new school year.

R is in 6th grade, his first year of middle school

L is in 2nd grade

This year their schedules are a little different, R leaves and gets home before L. I wasn't sure how this would play out, but I like it. R & I get to hang out early in the morning while L is still asleep. Then I have about an hour of a quiet house before I get to hang out with L before he goes to school. And I know that R likes that hour in the afternoon to unwind before L gets home.

L's teacher 'looped' with the class, that means he got to move up to second grade with the class. L was So Excited! We all think Mr. Ldbg. is one Great teacher!
R made it into honors humanities (language arts & social studies) and got to skip another year of math, so now he's 2 years ahead in math.

I love how well they both do in school, how much fun they have, and all the learning they get to do. But, I always miss them too, the beginning of the school year is Not my favorite!
