Major Life Changes
If you know me or have been following my blog, you know that we’ve had some major life changes in our family. Almost a year ago, in March, the boys and I moved from Seattle to California to live with my parents. I am amazed at the happiness I have found in my life since then….and it feels great!
In January, I started taking classes again at the local community college. While I do have my Bachelor’s Degree in Family Science, with a minor in Business Management, it’s not really an area I can get a good paying job without experience or more education. After much exposure to legal proceedings and jargon (given circumstances), I decided that I might really like a job in the area of Paralegal Studies. I was right! I love it! It is so fascinating learning about the different types of laws, procedures, branches of government, and more!
In addition to taking classes, my status recently went from legally separated to divorced in February….and from stay-at-home mom to student mom. Going back to school is so different this time around. I don’t want to pass my classes….I want to ace my classes! I am doing that for sure in my Business Law Class. I have an A right now and am ranked as #3 out of 35 students. Now that I’ve said this on a public site, I’m going to be even more inclined to keep up that grade point average. Hee hee!
Brian is doing an amazing job in school! He has so many friends and loves to learn. He is also playing Basketball and has shown tremendous improvements over the stretch of the season. Plus, he’s active in Cub Scouts, of which I am the Den Leader. The other day, us parents were brainstorming on places of work to visit (i.e. one parent works with the newspaper and another parent is a firefighter). Brian looks up at me and asks, “Mom, what are you going to do?” LOL I told him, “Well Bri, I’m the Den Leader.” LOL Kids sure do say the silliest things.
Dallen is also doing well and loves his preschool and friends. He is even printing his name and various other words. He’ll be totally ready for Kindergarten when it starts. In fact, when we take Brian to school, Dallen will most often ask when he gets to go to Brian’s school. I’m so glad he loves school.
Sam is growing so fast and I can’t believe how tall he’s getting! He is busy learning his ABC’s and various other songs that we teach him here at home. He loves to spend time with his Grandma and Grandpa and I LOVE it when I come home from classes and he runs up to me and shouts, “Mommy!,” accompanied by a big leg hug! His brothers usually follow behind him.
Anyways, I am still around, although I haven’t been posting on The Mommy-Files as regularly as I did before. However, we are starting to get things in order and everything seems to be falling into place. I hope you are all in good health and doing well.
Thank you so much for your support and friendships!
