My time has come!

I received a phone message from Bellingham Technical College about a week ago telling me that If I didn't enroll in classes for the fall they would take me off the nursing program last. I was confused by the message because they told me that I wouldn't be starting the nursing program for another year. When I called them back they said that they had sent me an acceptance letter (which must have gotten lost in the mail because I never got it.) They offered me a spot in the part-time practical nursing program starting this fall. I was quite shocked because Johnny and I had planned for me to start next fall. The way my schedule will work this school year though I will be able to keep my hours at the hospital and study at the same time. I am aware of two scholarship programs (one through the hospital and another from a local organization) that I will be applying for so I think it will work out financially (which was another worry starting so soon). After talking with Johnny about the offer we decided that it was my time-and to take it. For those of you who know me well-you know that I have been wanting to start nursing school for so long! I now have a set start date and a goal for being done-it feels good-and it feels right-God it good!

Davis Lake

We went camping at a beautiful lake in Canada with our friends Tanner, Julie, Ben and Danielle. We did a little fishing and swimming- it was pretty awesome.

The 4th!

The 4th of July never disappoints. What a tremendous day! We spent time with friends having water-balloon fights, going to a swimmin' hole and swinging on a rope swing, bar-b-qued ka-bobs, shot off fire works over the bay, and then went down and watched the fireworks. Good times

Juli and Blake

We went down to Seattle on Tuesday night to spend time with Johnny's cousin Juli and her boyfriend Blake who were in town for an LPA (Little People's Association) conference. It was wonderful seeing Juli and meeting Blake for the first time. We went to Chipotle for dinner and then went back to the hotel they were staying at and danced a bit.
