This week Ed officially finished his coursework for his Master's degree in City & Metropolitan Planning.  This has been a long process which I am grateful for.  After his coursework all that he has to finish is his professional project which is like a Master's thesis.  He plans on walking in May and graduating shortly after.

Living here has been a huge sacrifice.  It hasn't been easy but I can't help but feel this has been a blessing.  I've learned so much through this experience.  It has humbled me greatly.  I do look forward to this ending.

Christmas is next week.  I love this time of year when I can celebrate my Savior's birth.  I cherish the time I have with my family.  We're keeping it simple this year; there isn't much that we can do on our college student income.  Even with it simple, I'm excited to see my children enjoy Christmas morning.

I've been aching for trip.  It's been two years since our last trip when we went to Venezuela and Aruba.  I have planned several trips over the last 24 months knowing that they won't happen; at least not now.  Depending on my mood or what we're studying in homeschool determines where we're going next.

Ezra is starting to sleep a little better at night.  Naps are going well with a good schedule.  He is taking a 1 to 2 hour nap in the morning and then a 1 to 2 hour nap in the afternoon.  My poor system is messed up though.  I wake up every hour whether I need to or not.  It takes me several hours to fall asleep at night, sometimes not until 2am.  I then sleep until 10a.  I believe that my circadian rhythm is out of balance.
