A college student lives here!

Big things going on here in our household!

Chris officially started his masters program yesterday! He is taking online classes to get his Master of Science in Disaster Medicine and Management! What's that you ask? It is FEMA related things. It is right up his alley!! I am so proud of him! He has been talking about this for at least a year and a half and now it is reality! I'm sure it can't be easy going back to college after being out since 1996! I can't imagine going back! I know he will do great though! He is determined and this is perfect for him!

We had a nice day yesterday. I picked up my friend Andrea and her 2 girls and we headed to an indoor playland McD's! We met up with another friend and her 2 boys and everyone had a blast!! The seemed to run off a lot of the steam that they've been accumulating this winter! Macy and Jack hit their beds hard last night!

We, of course, stopped at the LSS on the way back. Umm, yeah, the whole trip was definately for the kids! Yeah, we didn't plan the McD's around the LSS or anything! *wink*
Here are some pics of the kids outside the store!



Believe it or not, my mojo is still kicking! Here's a new layout I did yesterday with pictures from the above kid shoot!!


I also got a great email today! Simple Scrapbooks wants to publish one of my layouts in their July/August issue! I'm super excited! It will be my first time in their magazine and I just love the layout they picked!

Thanks for reading!! Have a great rest of the week!
