Charli Beth's 1st Cricus

Yesterday was my first Saturday off since sometime in September which is alright with me. But it was so nice to have time to enjoy with Charli Beth and my family. We made plans in advanced and headed down to Nashville to the Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey circus at the Sommet Center. A lot of the clown acts were funny to us but got really old and boring to Charli quickly. Just because she isn't old enough to understand. Then came out the horses and the elephants (just like her "ellie" that she snuggles with at night) and she had a blast watching them. I believe she also loved that cotton candy!!! Lol, who doesn't though? We had a blast there and by the time that we left she fell asleep under her clown hat, as we headed to the Rainforest Cafe in Opry Mills. If you haven't ever been there. You should go! We always have a blast, with the lights, sound affects and animals that move every 15 mintues. She didn't eat good at all, but she did love her new cup that her Pa got her! By the time we got home, I believe we were all wore out from the long day!
(heres some pics of the circus)Well, just for a quick update...Just like the top of my blog says this is the story of the life, struggles, success, failures and love...Failure is something that I do not like, something that I dont want anything to do with. But we all must fail and go back a couple steps in somethings. Well, my EMT class...I did wonderful in the class, and in my state practicals, now as far as the NREMT (which you do have to have, and then can let go after you get it..which I sincerely think is incredibly dumb but anywho!) I failed taking it and then I didnt have the extra cash to take it again. I think knowing that I failed the test made me not want to work hard in studying just because I felt that once again I wouldn't do good. I do have that "mind set" about things a lot of times, even though I hate it. But anyways, I have now successfully unsuccessfully let my state practical run out and will have to wait until a class is over and can do them again. Great! So my thinking is..I'm just going to take the whole class again so that I can be sure to be ready and pass the test. Yes, you EMT's may think I'm a little crazy for not passing that test but guess what..I didn't and thats that. I'm just going to strive a little harder this time to get it done. I know I can do it. Anyways, I'm at work by myself and it's been a crazy day, hope you all had a great weekend!

I love, love, love the picture of sweet Charli Beth asleep with that big hat on. It is priceless. I am glad that you got to spend the day with your family and do something fun to.

As far as the test goes, you know that if you didn't pass this time it just means it wasn't in God's plan for you at the moment. Maybe he plans for you to pass another time, or maybe he has something completely different and equally wonderful in store for you. Either way, half the fun is just seeing what he has for us to do next! :) You will excel no matter what you do. So don't sweat it!

Happy Monday!

Okay, those pictures from the circus are SO CUTE!! It looks like Charli Beth had a great time... I'm glad you got to spend it with your fam! I've been to the RainForest Cafe in Opry Mills and it is to great! How fun! :)

Sorry to hear about all the test fiasco... taking the class again is a good idea, I think. That way you'll be totally prepared for it! I know you'll do great! :)

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
