Wedding Plans

Well... our wedding plans have changed. We are postponing our wedding and do not yet have another date set. We have a few reasons for this. For starters, it is important to me that my father be there and he will not make it up to Spokane this year. Secondly, it is not financially smart to get married right now. I am still covered by my Dad's medical and dental insurance until I am 24 (or married). So, that would be a big expense for us as well as throwing in the cost of our wedding. Reason number three, I am starting school in April and getting married will affect my financial aid! Sorry to change plans, but right now it is not a very smart decision for our family! We still make great parents and are a wonderful couple... married or not!

Our Trip!

We are home! We had a fantastic time! It was great to see my family and Aidan enjoyed re-meeting everyone! He enjoyed crawling all over their house. He learned how to climb up and down the stairs and how to crawl... the real way! LOL! He also figured out how to actually wave "bye-bye". He learned how to make "air kisses", noise and all! He started saying Mama and spent the whole week growling. LOL!

It was a blast to watch him play with his uncles, they absolutely enjoyed him! My brother Ryan nearly broke his ankle while we were there. Come to find out, he has a class 3 sprain. The doctor told him he would have been better off if he had broken his ankle and even offered to break it for him so he could simply set it, cast it, and be on his way. Anthony went fishing for 2 days while we were there and enjoyed it! He even brought home a bass one night and let Aidan touch it... he thought it was cool!

I took too many pictures! I am going to save myself some time and simply load them onto facebook. I will have some more coming as soon as I get the rest that my step mom took. I will post a couple from our trip to the beach.

My little brother Levi turned 7 on Sunday so we also had a little celebration for Aidan since they won't make it up here next month. We lit a candle on a cupcake and sang Happy Birthday to Aidan. He devoured the cupcake! He literally shoved his face in it!

For those of you who don't know, I will be starting college in April! I am going to get my degree in Nursing. I start my pre requisites in April. I took my placement test today which determines my placement in Math and English. It was made up of a writing, reading and math test. I took this same test 4 years ago. My scores are as follows: Math: Old score- 38, New score- 30; Reading: Old score- 97, New score- 99; Writing: Old score- 96, New score: 84. Over all, not bad. I don't think I did too bad for being out of school for 4 years, my reading score improved!

These scores mean I get to start English at college level (English 101) and I get to start math at college level too but a slower pace. I need to start with Math 91 then Math 92 rather then taking Math 96. It's the same book just split into halves. Math 91 and Math 92 equal Math 96.

I get to register for classes March 2 and my award letter for financial aid was mailed out today. This letter will tell me how much money I will be receiving this quarter. YAY! I am going to take my math online this quarter and my first biology lab class and I think I will also take Psychology 101. That is normally scheduled for 2nd quarter but because I am meeting my math requirement in two classes (2 quarters) I think I will take on one of my second quarter classes this quarter so I am not too overloaded!

I am so darn excited to be starting... it feels like I am starting a whole new chapter in my life. I seem to have started a few over the last couple years: Moving to Spokane, meeting Anthony, having Aidan and now school!

Yes, that's right... ROAD TRIP! We are heading to California, two weeks from tonight! We are piling ourselves and our stuff in our NEW car at 8 pm and driving straight through to beautiful Crescent City, CA. We are going to visit my dad, step mom, brother Ryan and brother Levi. I am SO excited. Anthony not so much. He is concerned about something happening to our car. We put in a new timing belt and had the water pump replaced yesterday, Anthony is installing new brake pads this weekend and we gave it a fresh oil change. So, other then some unforseen thing happening (like a blown tire or a rock breaking something) we should be fine. He's just concerned that we don't have the money for large repairs and he doesn't want to be stranded. He will be one grumpy man if something happens! Wish us some safe driving!
