One month down, about 15 more to go!

I knew that starting school meant that I'd be spending less time on my blog, but I still feel bad. There's so much going on! This past month has been really good. I just finished the Orientation part of school. During Orientation we learn how to do many of the things that they do in the Spa. It's kind of a crash course. We hurry and get the skills down so that we can work in the Spa to get experience. I just tested out of the skills I've learned so far, so that means that today I might actually take my first client. I don't know if I'm more scared or excited to start that phase of school. So far I've learned waxing (eyebrows, underarms, legs, lip, etc.), eyebrow and eyelash tinting, manicures, pedicures, a facial, and a back treatment. I can't believe I've only been in school less than a month with all that I've learned. There's still a long way to go and more skills to learn, but I think I'm off to a great start. So, as a little plug, if there's anyone who wants to pamper themselves (or drop some hints to the hubby :) you should totally come to Acaydia. Since it's a school spa it's half off the treatment, so it's a good deal for high quality treatments.

Here's me in my lovely school uniform :).

Other than school, life is going really well. This next month is my super crazy month. Just in our own little family there's three birthdays and our anniversary. Since I have school on week nights, most family things have to be done on Saturdays and Sundays. This Saturday we're celebrating Isaac's birthday. I can't believe he's already two! Then JR and I are celebrating our 8th anniversary (I know!) a couple weeks after that. Then it's JR's big 3-0 a week or two after that. And we end with Cali's 5th birthday party the first weekend in June. She's having her first friend party, so we'll see how that goes :). I really hope I don't kill myself with all that's going on, but I'm super excited for it too. Once this next month is over life and school will feel like a breeze! Ok, scratch that. I don't want to jinx myself!

Since I haven't posted pics for what seems like forever, here's some cute pics of the kids in their Easter clothes. Since everyone was sick over Easter weekend, they didn't get to wear their Easter church clothes until the week after Easter. So here's the kids sporting their new Easter clothes the week after :).

They're so cute :). Isaac looks SO grown up in this pic! You gotta love the mohawk :).

Cali looking so pretty and grown up :).

Don't you just want to squeeze him!

I'm still here...

Sorry for the long absence! It's been spent doing wonderful things that I really want to blog about, but haven't had the time or energy :). I'm in my second week of school and I'm loving it! I've learned manicures, pedicures, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, and eyelash perming (yeah, I didn't even know you could do that!). And that was just my first week! Yesterday I had my first school test in like five years! I was a little nervous, but it wasn't too bad. I got a 92%, so I can't complain :).

I hope you all are doing great and that you enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend. Mine was spend staying home taking care of sick kids, but it was still nice. I will do my best to get caught up with all that I want to blog about, but until then thank you for all your love and support and friendships!
