Our Visit to Pennsylvania

We recently returned from a trip to PA. Everyone was there! My parents, His parents, His siblings, my siblings and nieces and nephews. It was so fun! We went to Hershey park one day and had the best time! The roller coasters were amazing!

Then we went State College and to Bellefonte to spend some more time with family at our "Home Bases"

Family in town

This weekend my brother Tim, his wife Shannon, and my twin sister Rachael ( the one next to me :o) came to visit! So do you think my twin and I look alike?

We went to a GREAT restaurant along the boardwalk. It's called "Watermans" They have the best crabcake sandwhiches around!

We had a great time on the beach with them. We walked along the boardwalk, checked out the massive statue of Neptune and caught up on things.

That night we went to Bravo for dinner. We had the hook -up too! My sister rachael, works at Bravo part time as she is starting her sewing busines. Well she had been working there for years now and she gets a 70% discount! So we went all out... appetizers, drinks, great meals, and dessert! It was amazing. For the five of us the bill should have been $135, but instead it was only $60! Talk about a deal! --Ohh yea, that's my brother, Tim making that great face at the camera--he cracks me up!

Tomorrow mornng we are all heading up to Hershey's Park to meet my older sister, her husband and three girls. After that we'll all head to State College, PA where the rest of my family and tim's family lives. We'll be there until Monday :o) Everyone have a great weekend!

Graduate School

Well. I have finally started my master's degree. I am talking the Reading Specialist degree through ODU. GCA actually offered two Reading courses on their campus through Missouri State University. I took both of those and last night I FINALLY completed all of the work for the two classes. I have to say, I'm not sure how the guys do it.... classes and work every day and homework every night. I certainly have a new appreciation for my husband after finishing these classes. I am planning on taking maybe just one to two courses a semester, hoping to finish before we leave. That's the "Plan" anyways :o) We'll see....
