May 5th

Wow how time has flown by!!! I am now back in school, I am changing my major to Nursing. Funny but this is something that I should have done a long time ago. Kids change everything. But I guess going back to school now is better than not have gone at all! My Grandmother, Ruby, my mom's mother, has lung cancer. We found out March 25. Easy day to remember, I was in Norcross and that WAS mine and Shane wedding anniversary. Come to find out she has some type of scan 4 years ago and there was something that the scan, so we think that she has had cancer for 4 years now, so the good part is that it is a slow growing cancer but the bad news is that we missed 4 years of knowing and now she is getting worse each day. I am glad that I have gotten to have this time with her, that I live next door and that I get to help out when I can, it is not every easy when you have 2 toddlers to take care of and are going to school full time. I have also started helping Dad cut grass because he is getting to where he can't. I know that I am not the only one that is going through something like this and I take comfort in knowing that and I know that with God's strength we will make it through. I know that if I tried to do this on my own that I could never make it but with God's love and strenght I can. On the plus side I get to work on my tan while cutting the grass, Hey you have to try to find the bright side of things, eles you might go crazy, trust me on this!!!
Riley and Aiden are growing by leaps and bounds! Riley and Aiden got new beds, they can become bunkbeds later down the road. Aiden has done good sleeping in his big boy bed! Riley likes his new bed too, he did not put up on bit of a fuss when we got rid of the car bed! I am so glad that we have gotten rid of it. It is a cool bed, but not when you have 2 kids in one room, it is a little too big for that. Aiden is talking more and more and Riley is still the same old Riley. I thank God for them!!!
