1st Semester down

It's true I have survived the first semester of Cosmetology school. I can't believe I was able to work full time and ended up going to school full time. The orientation class gave me the basics of what we will be doing on an everday basis from here on out. Wow can I say just a little nervous to be out on the floor working on a live people instead of just Maniquines that don't move and they don't care if I mess up. My friend Heather and I joke that we will need to take a few valume before we go to school on Tuesday to calm our nerves. I ended up taking a 2 week crash course which turned out better that expected. It was intense 2 weeks with a few assignments due each day but I came out of this semester with a 4.0!!! YAY!!!!
Now time to move on with this schooling and I hope to be completed by August of next year. That seems so crazy to me to be done that soon. Lets hope that everything goes as planned with no hiccups in the road and I will be your ceritifed hairdresser. Maybe one day I will put pictures up of the different styles that we learned. But for now I am done with orientation and onto the next step in this long road of cosmetology school.

The New Arrival

Andrew James Vanfleet
Arrived May 5, 2010
at 11:58 P.M.
Weighed in at 8lbs and 3oz
Measured 20 inches long

Andrew is the first baby born on the Whiting side my family, so we were all so excited when he finally decided to make his appearance. I went and visited the new little family the next day and was just so much fun to visit and have him meet his new favorite Aunt. He has got so much hair and is the talk of the nursery. Andrew ended up having to be on the Bili lights so he looked like he was tanning with the goggles they put on him (when I upload pictures I will post that). He is a calm baby and doesn't cry to much just when he is not bundeled in a blanket or needs a bottle or a diaper change ofcourse. He is such a joy to have in the family here are some pictures of the proud first time parents and grandparents.
