Oh my goodness, of course I should update you all (all two of you) while I am here. Because you never know how long it'll be before I come back here!
I have completely finished with classes, as of last spring, and am now in an apprenticeship! I'm at a birth center, which is an hour+ away from my home. No, I am not planning on relocating....Zach is too happy where he's at for me to do that! More on that later. The birth center apprenticeship is wonderful and challenging--just as it should be! I have been to one birth so far--but that's about to change drastically. Come the middle of December I will be neck-deep in births. Christmas? What's that?
Zach is loving school at Benson Polytechnic High School. He is thinking about changing his "major" (yes, they offer majors in high school!) to communications, instead of electrics which is what he entered this school for. He is really getting into computer programming, which is cool. His sophomore year is decidedly more challenging than his freshman year, which I think is good! He had an awesome freshman year to bolster him up and I hope he can rise to the challenges of this year.
Aaron is away at college! (Okay, right at this moment he is home from college for Thanksgiving break.) He is loving it. I am adjusting. It's kind of a weird adjustment. I don't miss him like I thought I would--he was just so ready to go on to the next phase of life that I can't wish anything else for him. But the dynamics at home changed. And visiting my college kid at college? Weird. Just weird. Oh well. Something to get used to in the whole cycle of life.
