Tomorrow Is Testing Day

I'm not sure what has gotten into our family this year, but we are on the Education Journey for sure! I have decided to take two Community College courses as well as the Holistic Health Practitioner course. I will begin an English Composition course, as well as a Basic Computer course in mid September. I'm looking forward to a refreshers course on the technicalities of writing.

I have to go to the college tomorrow and take their placement exam. I'm confident that I will do fine on the English portion of the test. But math will most definitely be a joke. You might think I am just being modest. But I am not. I will be honest with you and tell you that my math level is literally probably at a 3rd grade level. There is a very real chance that I have a learning disability. I am actually going to talk to the college tomorrow about being tested. If I am officially diagnosed that will answer many questions from my whole life's journey. Wish me luck on the drive (by myself) and the test. Big steps for me. If you know me well, you know that I am NOT one who enjoys driving long distances.

Tomorrow is a day of tests. I will go to the audiologist and get a hearing test tomorrow afternoon. The genetic condition Osteogenesis Imperfecta runs in my family and it often causes hearing loss. I have shown signs of marked hearing loss in the last year. So I am finally going to be tested. Osteogenesis Imperfecta is also known as Brittle Bone Disease. That kind of sums it all up. My little niece had broken bones while in the womb. My father and my sister both have Osteoporosis. I haven't looked into my own personal bone health enough to tell you the stage that I am at. I am looking into that with my doctor right now.

So, life is moving along. I like the feeling of progressing. Jakob loves his school. I love my schooling. Leif enjoys his job and doesn't mind his schooling except the fact that he doesn't have enough time to focus on it. And Caleb enjoys the education that life brings.

Life is good!

Good for you guys! Good luck with everything! I'm cracking up right now because I think my math level is probably lower than a 3rd graders! Hence, I decided to be a lawyer :)
