Beach Trip....

Last weekend we took a trip with some friends to Holden Beach. It was very relaxing. I'm not sure if it was just a secluded beach or if no one was traveling to the beach until Memorial weekend but you wouldn't see but 5 other people on the beach that whole weekend. It was wonderful.

We traveled down in two groups. One Friday morning and the other Friday evening. I was in the second group with my friends Darcen and Susan. We got there around 8ish.  This was a place we paced on the way. Not sure why this man has all this stuff but we thought it was interesting and kind of creepy.

We got to the beach around 8ish. The other group had been there since around 1.

Saturday we spent most of the day at the beach. Like I said before no one was really at the beach that weekend so it was very nice. Not to hot either.

Here is everyone playing in the water and the boys playing with the sea creatures.

Saturday night we went to a local restaurant and had some amazing grilled shrimp burgers. I know it sounds nasty but they were amazing. Afterwards we went and played a game of miniature golf.

Sunday we took one last walk on the beach, took some photos and then went back to the local restaurant for one last shrimp burger and went home. It was a wonderful weekend and I hope it's something we can do again.

Yesterday was my orientation into the Medical Assisting program. It went great. I have a lot of things to check off my list before August but I feel very confident in finishing it all. I had a major let down yesterday. After the orientation I went over to the financial ad office to see where my status was on how much funding I would receive from the school for my classes. They informed me that Cray and I make way too much money and I will not be receiving any government funding and I can't apply for the school scholarships.

I'm so very disappointed. School costs so much and no matter what they think about our income I know it's not enough to pay for school. Especially when I quite my job in August and start school full time. There is just no way. So I've been spending my morning surfing the web looking for any and all scholarships that I can apply for. My last resort is loans. I don't want to take out loans for school but if that's my last resort I'll do it.

Please keep Cray and I in your prayers as we make decisions for my education. Either way I'm going to school full time in August. It's just trying to figure out how we are going to accomplish this financial step.

Summer Time...

Well school is over! My grades are in, I made a C in Medical Terminology and a B in Algebra/Trigonometry. I've finally excepted my C in Medical Term. Memorizing does not come naturally for me and I believe that I truly gave it my best.

Now that it's officially summer time, and I have 3 months of freedom until I commit full time to school, I'm looking forward to a couple trips Cray and I have planned.

This weekend it's all about this....

I'm looking forward to being a beach bum and hanging out with some amazing friends. Have a great weekend!!
