Another term down............

Cheers to everyone and your papers. Great Job!! I will miss this class and my classmates, but there is always next term. Barb, yes this was fun. Never did I think writing a paper would be fun, it was in its own way. There was a lot of hard work put into this paper, I know I still need work to improve. I am so very thankful for all the support and advice I received from everyone. My advice to someone knew to having to write a paper is to start early. I can not stress that enough. Starting early gave me time to decide which way I wanted my paper to be written.
Wishing the best of luck to everyone!! Have a fun and eventful future!!

Rafting trip

Finally we went rafting yesterday. Oh what fun my son had and I did too. I was so excited for him and was so tickled to watch him having so much fun. He was a little nervous at first but when he got splashed by the first wave of water the yahooing was on. He even sat on the very front of the raft and rode out a very good rapids. There were a couple of times he disappeared in the waves, but he was still there when it calmed down. We even did a little cliff jumping. I even actually jumped off the cliff into the river. Not sure if being in the sun affected me or I thought I was young again, but it sure was fun. And, I wasn't even scared to jump off into the river which totally amazes me. Must have been the sun, because I sure am feeling old today.
Looking forward to having a week off from school. Sure will miss this class and my classmates. I will miss you to Barb. You are a great prof. and mentor. To all my classmates I wish you all the best on your papers and your future. Sure am looking forward to seeing all of you next term who are in my classes and hopefully the rest of you in future classes.
Have a great week........

Happy Birthday America!!

Was suppose to go white water rafting on Saturday, but it was raining and chilly out. As the day progressed, it turned out nice and warm. My son and I went to my sister's for a BBQ. As always I ate to much, but it sure was good. The other group that was suppose to go with us rafting, they actually went. They said it was cold and the water was freezing, but they had a good time. So many people are being careless on the Yellowstone river they are having to be rescued. We rafting on the Stillwater river with guides. It helps to have someone tell you when to paddle and not to paddle. The guides are very well trained in all aspects of safety.
The 4th turned out to a very nice day. The weather was nice and I got a lot done around the house that has been put off because of school. So now I actually have a nice clean home for a little while I hope. Later the night I had a friend over and my son, her, and myself had a bonfire and watched the fireworks everyone around us were firing off. It is such a hassle to go the actual firework displays and trying to get back home again. I am not a very patient person.
I did not get to hear from oldest but I hope he is safe and well. I am sure he is. I pray for him all the time.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday!
