Therapeutic Recreation: Animal Shelter and the HESI exam

So I didn't post yesterday. It was Monday and I knew I couldn't possibly type out anything coherent or remotely interesting.

And how I know this is because, 3 hours after Joshua and I went to the grocery store, I happened to walk out in the garage and saw the chicken I was planning to cook for dinner...just sitting there. ON THE FLOOR OF THE GARAGE.

And then after dinner...as we are clearing the table and putting things away...Jim looks in the refrigerator and says, "HEY! Is this my SALAD in here?"

Yep. Forgot it.

Holly had a BIG test today in her nursing classes. It's called the HESI exam, and it's a huge obstacle all nursing students must pass in order to be eligible to take the NCLEX exams. After graduating from nursing school, all nursing students must pass the NCLEX in order to receive their nursing license. You must have a nursing license in order to practice nursing...so it's all very important. Holly is on the home stretch now...she will graduated with her RN in June! Anyway, the HESI test was from 1-5 p.m. today...and she PASSED! We are so proud of Holly! She has worked and studied really hard, but she is giving all the glory to God!

I took Joshua to Therapeutic Recreation this morning. They were going to the Animal Shelter, and he was very excited. He said that they divided up into groups and he got the "DOG" group...and Jenni got in the "CAT" group.

It's good that they are in different groups.

He told us all about the different dogs. How one large golden retriever jumped on him and he told him to "GET DOWN." He said, "his name was Maggie."

HIS name was Maggie.

Jim said, "so it was a girl dog?" And Joshua said, "he was."


The main problem Joshua had today was that he saw his girlfriend, JENNI, sitting in the front seat of the big van. Joshua was riding in the small van. He said, "I don't think Jenni should ride in the front seat, but SHE thinks that she SHOULD ride in the front seat."

And he did "air-quotes" over the words "but SHE THINKS."


We told him that it wasn't his business who sat in what seat. We just thought he was jealous, because maybe HE wanted to ride in the front.

Nope. He said, "if someone...a DRUNK...hit the van, Jenni would be very hurt. Even if I was in the same van with her, if we had an accident, I wouldn't be able to get out of my seat and stop the air-bag from hitting her."

Awwww...he just wants her to be safe.
