Stephen did very well in his first core of classes, finishing in the top 30% of his class. Anatomy did not start out as one of his favorite classes but he would prefer that to what he has now - up to four hours of lecture at a time!
His courses now are about cellular processes. I am amazed at how much information is presented to them in such a short period of time and even more so at how much they can retain. I guess that is why Stephen was called to be a doctor and not me!
He is still commuting every day but not minding that too much. We're saying our prayers that the weather continues to be nice as long as possible.
We are blessed to see Stephen as much as we do - he leaves every morning around 6:40 a.m. and is home by 5:45 p.m. I have heard many horror stories of students studying 8+ hours a day and we are so glad he is an efficient student :) He and his study group do an awesome job of making family a top priority. Jeremiah loves his time to play trains, blocks and chase with Daddy and we eat dinner together every night.
After his first test for the new core this weekend, we are all looking forward to a "short week." Oh, and I think he is a little excited to go the Nebraska-Colorado game with his dad on Friday. I have to say, I'm a little jealous, but we'll do some shopping and take a nap and I'll be just fine!

I am hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year! I am so excited! Stephen's parents will be here with us - a small gathering but very significant to me nonetheless!
I might be going a little overboard on the food, but I don't know when I'll get to host again so I want to try it all! I will post my menu as soon as it is finalized!
If you are hosting, I would love to know what your menu looks like! Also, I love to hear family traditions so share your favorites!

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like You have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your Kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into Eternity

Give thanks for the outworking of God’s sovereign will in our nation through the votes of citizens as seen in yesterday's election. Praise God for answered prayers as there were no major incidents and results were known with certainty. Pray for President Elect Obama to seek God and His will in every decision and plan that he makes, and pray for his safety as he travels and makes plans.
Pray for President-Elect Obama that he will be awed before God with the responsibility he has to seek His face as he prepares to lead the nation. Pray for a swell of support in prayer for him as he makes plans. Pray also for Senator John McCain, that he will have God’s grace as he returns to his former responsibilities.
