Weekly Update and Spring Break Begins

Well it is over and I am very proud to say that I passed my CNA Final. I earned a 97% on the test, not bad for such an old lady with a crazy life. I still have one last clinical and two state level tests ahead of me, but I have more confidence that I can do it. I also have two weeks to wait for that to be scheduled so I have more time to study like a mad woman.
***************
Today we had our first adventure of the week. We are not going to be spending much time at home waiting for the sun to come out, we are going to have our own fun. Today was the Living Planet Aquarium. A great place to go and really get into Ocean Life.

Drama Queen playing with the sting ray's. If she could have gotten in there with them I am sure that she would have. She got all wet and had a great time, no fear.

Sweet-boy was not so excited to touch the slime-y, moving things. This from the boy that plays with snakes? Go figure. So he tried to catch the fish that kept swimming by......

He could hear the ocean....







We followed this with a great lunch at Johnny Carino's, a family favorite.
Stay tuned for more Spring Break fun, oh and after snowing most of the weekend, the sun has finally returned. Yahoo..........

That place is fun. We went there a couple of years ago and the octopus gave us a great show. Hope your shunshine sticks around. Today is going to be gorgeous, so we're heading out for a picnic b/c tomorrow the rains/snow come again.

yahoo that the sun made a comeback and that you did so FANTASTIC on your test! Those other ones will be no sweat when you score like that! I have the same feelings though. Getting ready to plunge back into the college scene and pretty nervous about it.

p.s. did you daughters braids get in the water? lol Oh and that pic of your lil guy with the shell is TOO CUTE FOR WORDS!

Congratulations doing very well with your CNA Class. I too am getting ready to attend classes for a new adventure. I am nurse..lol But,
Due to chronic back problems, I am pursuing a new career of owning/operating my own Salon. I am working towards my nail technician licenses...Nursing was so rewarding and provided a very good life for me, now I am pursuing the "fun"...

Congrats on your test; I knew you could do it!

Glad to see you're having such a fun spring break. We had our fun at Disney; now it's time to work on the house. The kids are bored and cold, but the temps should warm up by Thursday, and they can play outside.

Good luck on the rest of your school stuff!

Love the pictures! Thanks for sharing your fun day.
