I'm back in school

I have a love hate relationship with school. I love... learning...reading great articles...remembering how to do math...learning more about the Book of Mormon and feeling like I have an outlet other than being a Mom. (I love being just a Mom, too.) Then I have the hate side. I hate homework...having to spend time on the computer instead of playing with my three fun kiddos...not having as much time with Drew...feeling like I don't have time for anything(especially not blogging) and feeling dumb because I don't remember how to do something.

I am really glad to go back and to finish my degree (even though it feels like forever away...okay maybe it really is) and to be able to do it right now. I know I want each of my kids to get at least a bachelor's degree and hopefully so much more. I hope they can think outside the box and find ways to learn new things just because they love them and not because they were taught to love them or told to. I hope they discover all kinds of new things.

I don't really remember why I started this post but hey I blogged today! I can check that off my list of things to do. Now back to studying.

awesome, eryka! you'll do great. and who cares if someone knows how to derive what the square root of -2 divided by 2 is... like sin(θ) or cos(θ) have EVER been useful to myself ...or 90% of any adult for that matter.

good luck, and keep it up!

I am so proud of you, and happy you are pursuing your education. It may take longer online, it will be worth it. You are a great mommy, wife and daughter who I love so much. The kiddos will follow their parent, as you both focus on education alot.

I did it all in one fell swoop, but I imagine it would be hard to go back! Way to go, Eryka! Keep it up!
