Out of the mouths of babes......

As much as I love my husband and my brother-in-law Martin, I often see them doing things at the dinner table that make me roll my eyes in disbelief. When they see this, they good naturedly tease me by saying "yes, Amy, we were raised in a barn". With it being something that we tease about back and forth, I wasn't too surprised when we when out to dinner with the Glanville family a few weeks ago and this happened:

Mark was sitting next to Jacob, who is six years old, and was trying to help him fill the time while we waited for our food. So Mark scrunched up his straw wrapper and dripped water on it to make it creep across the table. Then Jacob looks up at Mark and with utmost seriousness asks, "Is that something you learned when you lived in the barn?"

The look on the face of the waitress was priceless.

Spring Semester is over!

So I survived another semester! I have one more final on Tuesday, but other than that I am finished...for a whole three weeks
Summer semester is bound to be a hard one for a few different reasons. First of all, I am now officially a commuter student. I will be driving six hundred miles a week to go to and from school this summer. I am also taking some crazy classes!

Spanish 1 year 1
Spanish 1 year 2
Information Technology
Information Navigator
Math 1010
Math 1030

Crazy, right? I am lucky that the school has started doing new hybrid courses that can save me a lot of money. My math class is a hybrid. Basically, I register for the lower math class and work at my own pace. If I finish it, I can move on to the next class and if I complete it, I get credit for both. This means I basically get the second class without paying for it. I'll take 4 free credits any day!
