Do I look cuter now that you know I am a college student?

Well I am. I am taking 2 classes at LCCC. I have 10 classes to get my A.A. and the track I am on (or the plan I made up with my advisor today) is to have my A.A. completed by the end of Summer B. Then be able to start on my Bachelors in teaching. That is if everything goes as planned. This semester I am starting out taking 2 classes online. Intro to Algebra (ugh) and earth science. I don't know how this is going to go but I know now is the time. Heavenly Father let me know that and the way it all turned out to unfold so easily (well as easily as registering for classes can) I know now is the time, not that it will be easy but I just know I have to. Jenifer is also taking classes. She is going to school to be a phlebotomist (Did I spell that right? lol) She is the one that got me thinking about it and then it just hit me in many ways that I am sure you arent interested in but I just know that I have to do this and Jenifer was part of that inspiration plus I know I have to be in the classroom, as a teacher not a student. I need to teach. I am very nervous well ok scared to go to school with a 2 1/2 yr old and a full time job and well taking math and doing it online which I have never taken a class online so I am nervous at how this will go and how I will do. Did I mention how much I hate math and how bad I am at it? sigh. BUT I know Heavenly Father let me know I need to do this and I know he doesnt want me to do something I cant do so I will need his help and I know I have everyone's support here. JD is so great. He actually told me he is proud of me. *snif* that felt good. He is so supportive and encouraging already. I start tomorrow. pray for me.

Way to go! And thanks for putting our button on your blog, it looks great. Hang in there with algebra. Kids of the world need good teachers. Remember God lives by math too, it's part of the gospel.

Kate I am so proud of you for just attempting to go back to school. I am sitting in my lecture at school getting all teary eyed. It feels like yesterday we had to say goodbye to each other when I moved down to Tampa, and now you are doing proabably one of the hardest things ever, going back to school. I have no doubt you can do it, you are such a smart person and don't need a degree to prove it but I know how important this is to you. In what ever way Justin and I can support you just ask and we are there. If you need some help in Math you have 4 Noll girls at your beck and call, I think we all did pretty good in math. I can't wait to give you a big hug, I love you. Jennifer I am really proud of you too, this is such an amazing thing you are both doing.

I went to school for 1 1/2 years when Selena was Trey`s age & worked at R.L. at night I hope the online classes let you be home more than I was able to be. Good Luck to ya!! you will enjoy your schedule being the same as Trey`s when he gets in school.
