Our new adventure? I received a scholarship through my work to become a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner! Joe has been trying to get me to go back to school since we got married, and now I finally feel like I'm ready. I'm really excited but really nervous at the same time. Being an NNP is such a huge responsibility and I'm excited for the challenge, but am way nervous to be making the decisions for our tiny babies. It's a 2 year online program beginning in May and I get to do most of my clinicals right where I work. Is it weird that I'm actually excited to be poor college students again? Life is so simple. Especially since we will both be going to school together. I'm actually looking forward to it!

Although my parents were disappointed this may delay them having more grandchildren...they are so happy and proud. My parents brought my siblings and I to America so we could have a chance at a better life, and here we are many years later taking advantage of great opportunities. I owe all my success to my parents and am so grateful for everything they have taught me. Thanks mom and dad...this one's for you ;)
