What Laura's been up to...

It's so hard to believe that at this moment I have about 2 1/2 weeks left of this semester... and then only one more semester to go! This semester has been really busy along with being a new wife it has definitely been such a learning experience for me! I have had to really learn how to manage my time well....and let's just say I learned by trial and error ;) I am realizing more and more how very dependent I am on God for strength and perseverance. Lew has served me well during this time. He helps around the house: dishes, laundry, making the bed...you name it and if he knows it needs to be done he will do it....sometimes without even asking!

This is just a glimpse into my little world when I am in "school mode". This is pretty much what I have looked like 2-3 days per week.....surrounded by a number of different books.....keypad in my lap....typing away... different nursing diagnosis....medical histories....pathophysiologies... and not to mention all of the different information on all of the different medications we are learning about

I know I look kinda sad in this picture....but don't worry, I wasn't sad....just a little tired! There were moments that I was so weary and wondered how much longer I could take all the work of the semester, but God always supplied the strength I needed, and now the semester is almost at a close.

On another note I haven't had a lot of free time, but I did get to spend some time with my nephew Isaiah today while my sister went to have her 4 month prenatal visit (thats right she has another little one on the way Lord willing in October!!) It was so much fun to spend time with him and see how much he is turning into a little toddler ;) I couldn't take too many pictures because every time I whip out the camera he tries to take it away so the few pictures I could get were pretty funny. He got his hands on my sunglasses and decided he wanted to give them a try. It was so cute.

He insisted on me wearing them for a picture ;)

Well I don't have too much more to update on except for one more thing.....I lost about 8 inches....of HAIR that is ;) You can't see it too well in the picture above but after 6 years of growing my hair out I finally took the leap....it was just too much work! I now feel so free....5 minutes to wash it and 25 minutes to dry it...I am not quite sure how I ever survived with long hair before!

Keep up all the hard work! Even with you being in such a busy season I am so thankful for all the ways you have served us by watching Isaiah. He loves his Aunt La-ra. And I love your new haircut too!

It's very exciting that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I know that God has great plans in store for you as you are in a position to care for others and be a shining light of God's love.
