U is for University
I think I have mentioned that I am taking classes, but I don't think I have ever gone into specifics. In case anyone actually cares, I have an Associate's Degree in Professional Office Administration with a Legal Specialty, but never went beyond interviewing in law offices. The legal classes I took were interesting, but it wasn't the path I was looking for after all.
I eventually found a job at a bank that I really enjoyed, and decided to take a few banking classes at the nearby university through a program at my work. I enjoyed them, and decided to pursue my Bachelor's in Business Administration. I ended up choosing a different university because they offered more options for online courses, which worked better with two small children and a full time job. As you probably know, I am not working any longer. I left so that I could be home with my children and begin homeschooling the oldest. However, with my transfer credits and the courses I had already completed, I was so close to finishing that I didn't see the point in giving up. I believe you finish what you start. I was on track to graduate this coming spring, but as you can see below...another "U" in my life may postpone that to the summer.
U is also for Ultrasound!
Yes, that is a surprise little peanut! This was taken at 8 weeks 1 day. I am now finishing up my first trimester, which I think might explain why I have not been posting much over the last several weeks or been able to read my favorite blogs. I'm starting to feel a little better, though still fatigued, but I think the worst of it is almost over. While it was a surprise, we are always thankful for God's blessings! In case you're wondering, we're not "hoping" or "praying" for a girl this time. We pray for a healthy baby and that God blesses us as He sees fit.
