1 down. 3 to go.


Five months ago
I started nursing school - quite the journey as a mother of two small children.

We moved into a new home shortly after and I immediately found out I was pregnant with a third child.

I admit it has been a little overwhelming. Not the school part, but the being away from my family part. Every Saturday for the last five months has been spent in a classroom, a Long Term Care Facility, or working 12 hour shifts at the hospital.

Easy hasn't had an official "day off" in months.

To say the least: We are exhausted!

But today it ends. Today I have my last final. I will pass (even if I don't do so hot) and we will celebrate - all of us. We have all made it together. We have all sacrificed and are all still so in love.

And that is worth a major celebration!

In the coming weeks we will camp, swim, play with friends, and visit family. We will reconnect with each other and savor every moment. E and I will stay up late and watch movies, maybe go on a date, and enjoy sleeping in together on Saturday mornings (hopefully).

I can't wait.

So exhausting. Amazing how going to school while having a family makes you appreciate those free moments. Sacrificing together builds your love. Enjoy your time off!

congratulations to you my dear and to your darling little girls and supportive husband! Such an accomplishment. Going through school with kids is a bazillion times more difficult than going to school with out them...but...with them is so much better :)
