I passed...

I'm a happy girl today. I found out that I passed my written exam. The big one. The one that validates that I'm competent to practice as a Denturist. I fasted. My family fasted. I prayed. My family prayed. I begged Heavenly Father to grant me this. He did. Without him, I could never have done this. Without my husband and children I wouldn't be typing this at all. My parents, friends and siblings have rooted me on and encouraged me. All of these wonderful people were my legs. I'll forever be grateful to all of them. And now I'm going to go watch t.v and not feel a bit guilty about it for the first time in a very long time.

Denture patient...

Grace drew a picture of me treating a patient...or in her words "this is you putting a denture in someone's mouth." Goodness...I love that girl...

Science...

I won't lie. I hate science projects and when the kids come home and tell me they have one? I run and hide under my bed. I usually opt for ones that are easy...with no mess. Yep, I'm a little neurotic. But they wanted so badly to do complicated stuff. A lava lamp, And worse...a volcano. I had an epiphany...why not ask Chris to help? For some seriously weird reason, I've never asked for his help with the kids' science stuff. He basically took it over with the girls. They went to the store, bought the supplies, I helped grace do the lava lamp, and he helped Scarlett with the volcano...and I mean, wow...he was like a kid in a candy store with that thing. He even did a slow mow video of it erupting. It was perfectly delightful to see the fun they had.

Mormon prom...

Yes, this lovely daughter is mine. Sometimes I have to pinch myself and make sure that it's not a beautiful dream that she belongs to me. She's such a sweet, wonderful friend and child. She went to a Mormon prom last night with some friends and had a great time. She looked beautiful and classy. Love you, Halee bug...

My Austin...

I just feel like saying how much I love this sweet boy. Yes, I know...he's more of a man than a boy but he's my baby. Plain and simple. I value his advice. He's been a great support to me while I study. Always offering to help quiz me and always encouraging me. He truly is one of my best friends. I feel so blessed to have close relationships with my sweet children.

Dancing the night away...

She began talking about it over a month ago. This "daddy daughter dance" that would be absolutely amazing and fun. Grace, you see loves to do "fun" things...especially when it involves her family. And from a family of 6 kids, naturally any one on one time is regarded as wonderful. 

When she came home from school and saw her corsage, she was smiling. When we fixed her hair and she walked to the car with her dad in hand, she was beaming.

When she came home to tell us all about it she told us all the lovely details about how her and her dad danced every single song, and he twirled her around and threw her in the air. It made us all smile at her pure happiness of the night. I think it's safe to say that some memories were made.

I think I'm finally losing it...

I've studied a total of probably 30 hours in the last five days and the week isn't even over. No time for makeup or looking good Because there's no time to do anything but learn about partial dentures, upper and lower dentures, carcinomas, sarcomas, anemia's and the list goes on, and on and on...I'm a little tired. A little loopy, I drink a cherry coke every day as I learn about the importance of health. Good times. Surely there is an end to this madness...
