Easter happened!

I love Easter, I really do. My kids are never too old to do an Easter Egg hunt. We have an egg hunt for the kids every year. This year was the first year in the house that we live in and we have soo much room! My soon to be 2 year old had such a blast! I could not believe the amount of eggs that he found. He naturally found all of the easy ones, but he also found some of the eggs that were for the big kids, as they were a bit harder to find. It was a really fun day for the kids and us, watching them. My neighbors, who don't have small children or grandchildren actually called us up and wondered if it would be alright if they hid some eggs on our property also, so that they could watch the kids find them! How cool is that?

I'm sorry that I haven't been on here much updating. I have been trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. It is a very time-consuming process. I know that I posted earlier that I was gravitating towards nursing or industrial engineering, but I have completely veered off that path. I found a degree that I can do entirely online, that way I don't have to quit working or move away for a few years. I have been spending my time applying for grad school at the University of Illinois. I am applying to their Environmental Studies program. I just finished my application essay, which took 4 days to write, scheduled my GRE test and enrolled in the one prerequisite class that I was missing. Hopefully, I will be able to find time to prepare for the GRE and spend a bit more time updating this blog!

Environmental studies would be so interesting! Surprised that it's eomething you can get online! Congrads!

I just stumbled across your blog, we have something in common! We share the joy of living in this beautiful state! I can't say that I am a cross-stitcher but as I am well on my way to being a homemaker it could be in the near future! :)

Ah the kids look like they're having lots of fun.

Good luck with your degree, I'd like to do something too, but no idea what, or why I really want to do more educational stuff - I hated school.
