College bound

I got some exciting news, I got into Georgian Court University's nursing program, and I start in January! I am very excited, yet nervous and scared. I've been a stay at home mom for so many years this will be a complete change of pace for our whole family. I've got a lot of things to figure out in the next month-ish before school starts. Mostly what were gonna do with Seth while I'm at school. It'll all work out. Baby steps here. I still can't believe I'll be a full time student so soon! Yay me!

A little Simon update- he is doing great. He seems to be mending just fine and hasn't turned into a werewolf yet. We're keeping a close eye on him though. When's the next full moon?

I had fun preparing some of our Thanksgiving foods for tomorrow. Pies are being brought to us so I didn't make them this year. The kids helped me make dinner rolls from scratch. I've always purchased them before. They're really easy to make. Time consuming but easy. Hopefully they'll taste as good as they look!

From this:

To this:

We also made cranberry sauce.



I am eagerly anticipating eating all the delcious food tomorrow. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy your four day weekend.

Hey Ellen! Long time, no see ;) I searched my vast collection of messages from blogs and emails and found your email finally-- been wondering what is happening in your life and I see you made it into nursing school! Congratulations! I am starting nursing school too next month! I'm in a 2-yr program. Will figure out the rest to get the CNM later. I took what I could get with the crazy waiting lists! I'm on Facebook all the time hangin' with a million other birth professionals. Find me there with this email address if you're interested: kris@pacificbirthcare.com
