Well it was push to get the homework done for the two worst classes of my entire Bachelor degree.
I struggled with the discussion for Stats and the rotten "isn't world civilization just the most important subject ever!?" Instructor. But come June 28th, I pulled out a B+ and B sooooo guess I can hold my head up for now.
I am officially done with the Bachelors degree and in August will head into the teacher credential program on my way to a Masters. In California, the extra credential can take up to 2 years to complete lets hope there is a job at the end of it.

Challenge number 3...
After many many excuses I made my way back to the gym, running, and eating properly.
Right now, I am averaging a 17.08 minute / mile and am holding steady at 2 miles. I am babying my knee as it is prone to twangs. I am strength training with cable machines at a level 4, 3 sets of 10. I am thinking about entering the next "boot camp" class. I need to get over my social phobia first. This week alone I am down 4 lbs and 3/4 of an inch on my waist. We will call t his challenge as... In Progress :)
I started riding my bike. My sister's house is 1.3 miles from mine. Why am I driving this to take my niece home??? I have a bike trailer and a perfectly good bike! So I get at least 2.6 miles in at night
Challenge number 4...
The boys have all become money sieves! We "tried" gymnastics and they all loved it so we enrolled. 150.00 a month; Monday night for the big boys, Tuesday night for the Boo. Not to mention the back to school shopping, the amount of food they ALL eat, the gas to drive them around...on and on and on. BUT they are happy healthy boys, so I really cant complain.
That being said... I cant wait for school to start :)
