3 months....really???

Has it really been 3 months since my last post? Wow! How time flies! We have been sooooo very busy this summer. We took a trip to Georgia at the end of May to visit my brother Jason and his wonderful wife Krista (and their two foster children, whom we all fell in love with!). Here is a picture of Grace at the ocean. We had a blast that day collecting sea shells and watching the kids experience this for the first time. I started back to school right after we got back and that's why I haven't had time for typing posts.....too much homework!

I will say that this journey through grad school is more difficult than I imagined. I didn't expect it to be easy. The work itself is not hard. I got my undergrad degree with a lot of hard work too (but that was before I had two kids running around the house while trying to write a 10-page paper!). It's just getting hard for me to manage my time. I'm just thankful I have a husband who understands and offers a hand whenever he can. A couple of weeks ago he came home early from work and surprised me with an afternoon of study time (about 4 1/2 hours!). He did this after playing "Mr. Mom" for two nights that same week while I was in class. I think that's what made it so great in my eyes.
