Back to School, etc.


("Mama, can you hear me?
Mama, can you see me?")

Oh what would she think? ... today was my 1st full day of lecture and lab at my accelerated CNA course (what was I thinking?). Actually it was pretty awesome. Out of the classroom very soon and off to Cherry Brook Health Care Center. If all goes well I will be a certified Nursing Assistant by the end of August ~ amazing! I guess there is a bit of my Mom in me after all, I'm just looking forward to giving back and making things a bit easier for some folks
(while earning $$$ to send my boy to college).

Jasmine is very proud of me

(and loves to have her picture taken)!

Tons of homework - YIKES!

"Service changes people. It refines, purifies, gives a finer perspective, and brings out the best in each one of us. It gets us looking outward instead of inward. Righteous service is the expression of true charity, such as the Savior showed."

--Derek A. Cuthbert, "The Spirituality of Service", Ensign, May 1990

What are you folks doing for fun this summer?

Here is another one of my favorite
"summers-gone-by" Cape Cod pictures!

Editorial Reviews
"Book Description: The key to understanding men is in understanding how they relate to their gadgets. Just because they may seem to show more interest in their computers...or their remote controls...or their fancy watches or their power mowers or their stereos... doesn't mean that their toys are really the most important things in their life. In Boys and Their Toys, bestselling author Bill Adler, Jr. explains how men use toys to assert their independence and freedom, relieve stress, connect to their lost childhood, and even express their nurturing side (without having to admit it). Written in Adler's fun, humorous style, the book reveals how women can:
* learn how a man's interest in particular "toys" can be used to predict his behavior

* know when a guy's passion for gadgets crosses the line into obsession and what to do about it

* take advantage of the human-gadget relationship to improve the human-human relationship

Smart and funny, Boys and Their Toys helps readers understand what makes their men tick...and grow closer with them in the process."

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day
to every man
who has loved a little child
and helped that child to grow!

Arthur A. Chouinard
July 14, 1927 - November 4, 1989

How lucky to have had so good a father!
On us his warm, unstinting sun long shone.
We were, of his hardworking life, the center,
Loved for the pure joy of love alone.
Uncanny are the requisites of pleasure,
Coming as they do within the will.
Knowing well where lay his greatest treasure,
Years on years of love he labored still.

By Domenico Scarlatti
