I'm back!

I know I've been "gone" for a while. It's just kinda been nuts around here.

Some of you may know that our oldest daughter and her son live with us. They have been here for almost 2 years now. Right after she moved in with us, she went back to school to finish her degree to teach. She loves kids and is very good with them. Well, as soon as she finished her first semester back in May is when she was diagnosed with hodgkins so the two classes that she was going to take last summer were put on hold. Determined not to let that slow her down, she is carrying quite a load this semester. She goes to school on Monday from 3:00 - 9:00. Tuesday through Thursday she goes from 6:00-9:00. I'm not sure that it's not way too much for her as she is also "subbing" as a teacher assistant for 12 weeks. I don't think her stamina has built up enough yet.
I said all of that to say this........we have become "full time parents" again. She doesn't see him at all on Monday and just a couple of hours the other days. Of course he goes to his Dad's every other weekend so there's not alot of time for them. It sure has rocked our world, but it will be worth it when she gets her degree. I'm so proud of her for her determination.

Have a great rest of the day!
