3 more days of class :)

It's been a while since I've written anything and I feel like a lot of things have happened.

First, Nathan has been volunteering with the Kids in Action program at our church, Munsey United Methodist, which is a program through Coalition for Kids. I'm so proud of him and grateful that he has found something positive to do with some of his time that is outside of the home. Well, the kids of the program served us dinner one Thursday night. They made place mats, and flowers to decorate the tables with and served the entire meal with a couple of adults assisting them. It was the sweetest thing I seen in a while from kids that are at the age of not wanting much to do with adults. It was a lot of fun for us. It also sparked a thought in my mind to volunteer with their summer program.

Secondly, I finally got over my "sickness". I think it was allergies. However, the sneezing, cough, drainage, weakness, and appetite have gone away thanks to Claritin D. It is so nice to feel hungry sometimes again.

Thirdly, I turned 28!! April 17th was the big day:) However, it wasn't much of a celebration this year because I was trying to finish up all my work for the last two weeks of school. The one really cool thing is that my wonderful husband made me a beautiful bunny cake. It was so cool and it's only Tuesday and it's all gone. It was strawberry, the best ever:)

Fourthly, Nathan was in the ER on and on for two days, sorta. Monday afternoon he was being a stubborn man and pulled a washer up our outside steps from the basement to haul off and cracked something in his back. That evening we spent almost four hours in the ER room and didn't see a doctor!! HOW PATHETIC IS THAT!! He went back on Tuesday morning at 9am and didn't leave the ER until 2pm! Then spent about another hour and a half at his doctor's office and the pharmacy.

I think that wraps up the big events in my life since the last posting.

One really cool thing I have learned about in school recently is a program called PREZI!! Everyone should check it out. It is a presentation program alternative to PowerPoint. I have made one so far for my activism project, the other people in my group will be editing it as well so it's not a finished product yet. I will post it once it is complete. It was a lot of fun to put together and I really like how it looks when I actually go through the presentation. It is so different and more intriguing to watch than a plain same ol' same ol' PowerPoint. With prezi you can have a a free account if you have an edu email account which simply gives you more options for making your presentations.

I'm looking forward to the summer and I'm glad I finally found my niche:)
