Finals are over!!

I am more than thrilled to announce that mine & Anthon's finals are over... and we both rocked them!! I was a little anxious going into mine because the week preceding it had been kind of hectic & I didn't have as much time to study as I would have liked to . For example, Sterling had a nasty little virus that landed him with a constant 103.5ยบ temp for 3 days, My mother in law came down to help with the boys but then my sister-in-law had her baby 4 weeks early & he was in the NICU for a week, and a million other little things that took priority over studying. Oh, & I bombed my test that week too. (the HESI- it's like a mini version of the state board that just covers what we learned this semester) I guess, I shouldn't say bombed- I got a 75%, which is average normally, but is considered a D in nursing school. However, Heavenly Father was once again infinitely merciful and helped me out! I got a 92%!! Which is only a B per nursing school standards, but I'll take it! I ended up with a 88% for my overall grade and couldn't be more thankful! I just wanted to pass- which requires a 76% or higher.
I celebrated my victory by going out to lunch to Cheesecake Factory with some of my classmates and then snuggling my boys the rest of the day!!
Onto Anthon's victories!! He took a weight training class, Microbiology, & Nutrition this semester and did amazing! Sorry, I don't have nitty-gritty details for his finals like I did for mine but overall he scored an A in weights, an A in nutrition, & a B in Micro. I am SO proud of him!! He works really hard to be a great employee and excel at work, and works even harder academically! Many people may not know this, but he has always struggled with reading/ comprehension, so he has to study double the amount of time I do to understand the material- I consider his accomplishments this semester way bigger than mine & as a HUGE victory!! I am SO proud of you Anthon!
We celebrated by going out to Bahama Bucks.
I'm SO happy this semester is over & that we get to spend some time together & with our boys! School is definitely taxing on all of us, so this month long break is going to be awesome!!
This was taken this morning- I LOVE being here when my boys wake up! I see a difference in them when I'm home with them... not that they are miserable & grumpy when I'm gone at school most of the day, but there's just a lot more joy in our home (Probably has a lot to do with my attitude)! Whatever the reason, I'm SO looking forward to this winter break!!
