My Little Brother Graduated!

I still can't believe it. My little brother graduated from high school on Friday night. I am so proud of him! Eric graduated from Minico High School with honors and in the top ten of his class. Looking at him graduate the other night made me realize how fast time flies and how old I really am getting.

Waiting for graduation to start.....

Still waiting in anticipation.....

Silly string everywhere. Wahoo! Eric graduated.

Just a Few Pictures of the Kids

I DID IT!!!!

I finally graduated from college! After four years, countless hours of studying, cramming for tests, procrastinating papers til the last minute, and staying up late working on care plans, I made it through Idaho State University's Nursing program. It look a lot of motivation, hard work, and commitment as well as smiles, tears, a few emotional breakdowns, and time away from my family. But in the end all of that was worth it. Since my graduation, I have taken some time to reflect on the last four years of my life and all that I have accomplished. In those four years, I managed to give birth to my first daughter, get married, make some really good friends, give birth to my second daughter, and graduate with my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. And I would have never have been able to make it through all of that without the support of my family and friends.

A Graduation Update!

It has been a while since I posted so I am just going to do a quick update for everyone. No pictures for this posting but I will have a bunch for the next posting. So I finally made it to the more school, no more finals, no more classes, no more clinicals, and no more homework! I am graduating on Friday from the Nursing program in a special pinning ceremony and the official graduation is on Saturday (even though I am not walking). It feels surreal to be graduating from college and moving on with my life. I think this is one of the most exciting things that has happened in my life behind getting married and giving birth to my children. All of the hard work and time away from my family is finally going to pay off. Unfortunately, I still have yet to find a job but I am staying positive and I know something will come along soon. If things work out the right way, I will be working on the Med/Surg floor at Cassia Regional Medical Center in Burley. Dereck also applied for a job at Dot Foods in Burley that he is more than qualified for. So hopefully those jobs will come through for us and we can get a new start. Even though I do not really care to go back to my hometown, I think this may be a good start for us and a positive thing as we have lots of family there to help us out. Anyways.....I just feel so blessed I have an understanding and supportive family and friends that have been there to get me through school and now to get me started in my career. Thanks everyone!
