Graduation day for Laura!!!

Yes folks, the day has finally come. I am a graduate!!!
Today was a lot of fun after the test was done. We were all pretty anxious about it this morning, but it seems we may have all fair pretty good. I feel confident that I have done well and will pass, but it takes two weeks to know for sure.

Here is a picture of all of us today in our scrubs at the graduation. I had to get up in front of everyone and read this really long poem, but I did survive. Thanks to our instructor Martha, I have found the confidence I needed to continue my education. She has been a really encouragement to me these past few months and really would like to see me go on. For now I will use my CNA licence (if I pass) and continue to work where I am at for now. This fall I am hoping to pick up a few core classes to help me get ready for Nursing school. God has great things planned for me, now I just need to figure out what that is.
Thank you all who have supported me during these past few months. Ian has been great too and I owe him big for all he's done to keep the house us. On every Tuesday and Thursday we had class he was home with the kids all day alone and that isn't easy to do. God has blessed me with a caring husband who is willing to sacrifice for me to follow my new found dreams. Love you Ian.

Anna's Graduation

Hi all, I am going to try and download pictures from Anna's Graduation. It was a cute little time for the kids. Very funny to listen to them sing and do the sign language they learned.

A little fun with Friends

So, today was my last class for the CNA class I have been taking. Well, instead of going and working in the class room we went to a restaurant and had Chinese food. It was a lot of fun and just a great time to talk about other things besides the test we are taking on Saturday morning. I thought I would share a few of the pictures. Its been a great 3 months for me taking this class. I have made 11 new friends. Don't know if we all will keep in touch, but they have all made my life more interesting for the past 3 months.
The woman in the pink scrubs was actually a class example. That's our teacher next to her. Then there is me with one of the girls who has been encouraging me all during the class (its while we were at dinner tonight). I will try to upload more pictures, but for tonight that is it.

Here it is.....

Ok, so I feel very good about telling you this now. I have successfully completed my CNA final exam with a 100%. That's right you all, I did it. I really got a 100%. I couldn't believe it either. So, with that grade I have really passed my class and am well on my way to passing the board test which is next Saturday. Please pray as that day approaches cause I will be getting nervous as that day approaches. Then after our test we will have a little graduation for the class and our families. Should be a great day. I will post pictures.
Well, the kids are both doing well. We have had a few busy weeks here, but I will be putting some more posts on here soon.

Drum Roll Please!!!!!

So, for those who have been following my progress in my class I can now officially say, I passed my Final Exam!!!! I won't disclose my grade at this moment as my teacher is allowing me (and other in the class) to redeem ourselves and get it all right. Pray for me this weekend as I study hard. We can redo it on Monday during our class. Pray that the Lord will calm my nerves. I have never been a great test taker, for those who know me you know this is true. I have now finished my clinical part and we are back to the class room. Its been a tough few weeks working in the hospital and nursing home before that, but we have all survived. Last night was my final night and it was tough. The hospital floor was full so we were busy.
Well, thank you in advance for your prayers.
