I thought it was time for a few pictures of the kids, doing what they do best - PLAYING. While life was busy with me in school, I managed to take a few pictures proving that life wasn't all work and no play. It was an early Spring, so we went for a family hike at Umstead. Sarah tried out a little rock climbing. Jaley set Mick up with the longest Match Box Car train we've ever seen. And one day when Mick was "napping," he turned his room inside out . Yes, that is Mick on top of a mountain of every book and article of clothing in his room.
As for school, my official graduation is tomorrow. Bring on the Pomp & Circumstance, I'm ready to flip my tassel. Despite the thrill of graduation, I still have one (and only one) hurdle left on my Nursing School Odyssey - passing my boards. I am scheduled to take my licensing exam, the NCLEX, on May 24th. It is a national test to ensure I have achieved a "moderate level of competency." Sadly, the practice tests I've been taking are leaving me feeling less than competent. Happily, the first time pass rate for UNC grads is something like 98% - I hope those odds hold up for the class of 2012.
For all the moms out there, have a very happy Mother's Day. Get spoiled you deserve it. That is life in the stroller lane.
