my thoughts

Oh my goodness! I really have so much to blog about but so little time.
I am back in college, yup that's right!
Any spare minute I have I am on the computer doing assignments, group discussions, reading lessons and blah blah blah. I am finishing my degree online with the University I started with... BYU-Idaho. I actually cried the other night as I was reading a talk for an assignment by Elder Bednar called "Learning to Love Learning" where you can read it HERE .
I later chatted with my husband about how great it feels to be back in school learning again. I had forgotten what it was like to read and study subjects I didn't know or cared much about. I am so grateful for this coming busy year that I will have with completing college all the while raising my baby boy. It will be hard but it will be good for me and for my family.

This is WAY off subject,,,
but I found this picture of a group date we planned in September 2007!!! It made for a good laugh and it's important to take a minute to laugh every once in a while!
me, charlie, mark, jessica, dave and charlotte!!

Carolyn, I am so excited for you! Even though it is exhausting at times, learning adds a whole new level of breadth and inspiration to your day...
I am also so impressed by your determination to finish school even with a baby. And don't forget about my babysitting offer! Whenever you need it, I'm here. :)

Uhh... I had no idea we had taken a picture of that! Fun night though, that's about all I remember. Hope your new adventure turns out easier than you are planning...good for you for finishing! Will you and Charlie be done at the same time? I agree about learning though, I have been reading a lot of books to make sure I don't stop exercising my mind.
