Wow! Two years really?

I can't believe it's been two years since my last post. Things have gotten SO busy! I started working in the local school district here and then was hired full time as a teacher's aide. Now, I'm in the education program finishing up my Special Education degree. It's very time consuming, but it is the realization of a dream started long ago.

This summer, I am busy reading. I am currently reading four books with others on the list. I want to use this summer to read since the school year is incredibly busy for me. Here is a list of books that I intend to read this summer:

The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers
Custard Crime by Jessica Beck
Deep Fried Homicide by Jessica Beck
Dove in the Window by Earlene Fowler
Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O'Neal
Left Neglected by Lisa Genova
The Lost Wife by Alyson Richman
The Paris Wife by Paula McClain
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
The Secret's in the Sauce by Linda Evans Shephard
Sugar and Iced by Jenn McKinlay
This Girl by Colleen Hoover
Top Secret Twenty-one by Janet Evanovich
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
The Typewriter Girl by Alison Atlee
The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

I am also working on some afghans for my Helping Hands group. I am loving it and have missed being creative.

My family has also been expanding. On October 31, 2013, my son married his sweetheart. Her name is Cheyenne and she is the perfect match for him. They seem very happy and I am very proud of them. Then, on May 16, 2014, my life changed forever when my first grandchild was born. Miss Emma Marlee Moore was born in St. George, Utah and she is just the most precious baby ever.

So, life has been all about work, school, and family for me and I wouldn't have it any other way!!
