Yesterday was a big day at our house. Mike graduated from Nursing school!! It has been a looong 2 years and we are so glad he is done! He has worked so hard. Working full time as a helicopter medic, part time in the ER at a local hospital, going to school, and still being a great husband and dad. And I couldn't be prouder because not only did he graduate, but he did so with a 4.0 GPA! It was an emotional night and I'm glad I remembered to pack tissues! It will be great to have him home more. I know the boys have missed him just as much as I have. Now we can relax a little and focus on our upcoming vacation. We are getting to go visit Mike's family in Wisconsin for 3 weeks. We have never been able to go for that long and it's great because it makes the 16 hour drive worth it! Plus, we get to make a pit stop to take the kids to the Creation Museum AND we get to see friends that we haven't seen in 3 years! I am SO excited! We both had baby boys last year only 2 1/2 months apart and I can't wait to meet him in person and let her meet Keaton. Definitely going to be a lot of picture taking that day! And speaking of babies, I get to meet my new nephew, Sam who was born in April. We are also looking forward to being there for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. We miss so much being so far so it's awesome that we get to be there for that! They are wonderful people and we are all looking forward to spending time with them. I feel for women who don't care for or don't get along with their in-laws. I love mine and I know they love me. It's truly a pleasure to have them visit (not to mention a huge help!). Anyway, all I can say is , bring on the summer! We are ready to relax!!
