Hello Blogging World

Sorry it has been so long. So many things have been happening, and now that spring break is in session, I have some time to write about it!

First and foremost, happy birthday to Mr. Jon! He turned the big 2-3 on the 15th. We celebrated with Cafe Rio, an ice cream cake to die for and some of his favorite shows. We are heading north to Goleta this weekend to celebrate his big day (as well as his brother's) with the family.

Since my last post I am happy to say that I have now seen four clients. I have been scheduled five. So things are definitely moving along at the clinic- hopefully all the clients will come back (haha).
I also have been facilitating parenting groups at the YWCA and loving it. Unfortunately I can't do it next quarter because of our new schedule but I hope to pick it up again soon after.

Speaking of which... after this week we officially start spring quarter. I have quite a few classes and am working regularly at the clinic. It will be interesting to see how things shake out with my schedule. Sometimes it feels like this program is flying by- other times it feels like I can't believe I have a whole year left. Either way I am learning tons and loving it.

Jon has his one-week internship for phlebotomy this week. His internship is in Victorville, despite the commute it seems to be going very well. He has already had more than 25 successful "sticks" and is really getting the hang of things.

After Jon's internship is over he has only TWO WEEKS until he takes the MCAT. We are hoping all of his hard work will pay off. We know he has studied to the best of his ability, now we are just praying that God make up the rest.

The weather in California has been moody, it can't make up its mind if it is sunny, rainy or cloudy. But I like it just the same. We are happy to be where we are. Sometimes I can't believe I am in graduate school (it even feels weird to type that out) and I can't believe Jon is progressing so much in his plans for med school. It feels a little unreal. But I am thankful for the things that keep my grounded: my family, my friends and my faith. God bless.
