School, work, and dreaming of sunshine.

Sorry that it's taken me SO long to write this post! We haven't had internet at our house until (hopefully) today. It's been a little difficult living in a home without internet, and I've been trying to get by with just school and visits to the library and my parent's house. 

Here are a few more pictures from our trip to Coeur D'Alene:

It was so incredibly beautiful there... Matt and I have a dream of owning a cabin on the lake someday :)

Here's a catch up of the last few weeks: Matt started his job at Pro Club on Tuesday. He has long hours and a tired brain from all the information he's soaking up in his orientation but he absolutely loves it. I am so excited for him!

I had the two-day orientation at UW for my doctorate program last week, and my first day of class this Thursday. I am still getting used to the bumper-to-bumper traffic commute into Seattle but I am so happy to be starting school once again. I am one of seven Pediatric Nurse Practitioner students, and we are part of a cohort of 68 Doctorate of Nursing Practice students (including other disciplines such as Adult/Geriatric, Maternity, Psych and Family). It is so wonderful to be advancing my education in the nursing field and to be able to study at the #1 nursing graduate school in the nation. I am surrounded by classmates and professors with years of experience in many different settings, so I have much to learn. The program is a "hybrid" program, meaning half of it is online. This is great because is requires me to go to campus for class only once every other week - which offers me a lot of flexibility. 

That flexibility is great because I am on the verge of getting a job (I hope)!! I have had two interviews and I have another scheduled on Monday. The jobs are all wonderful opportunities and I will be working full-time (4 ten hour shifts/week) in addition to full-time school. Stay tuned to hear how all of it turns out! :)

Sorry I don't have many pictures to post today. I will hopefully get to post how the newly decorated inside of the farmhouse looks soon :)
