I will start with the boring stuff--dental school. What a ride! I don't know how else to say it. On Friday (Oct 18) we had just finished our 2nd week of lectures and our teacher told us some numbers. 65, 42, 5. 65 hours worth of sitting in a classroom listening to lectures, 42 lectures to be exact, of those 42 exams we took 5 tests (well, the fifth was actually this morning). So, my daily schedule has been the following: wake up at 6, at school at 7, study till 9, class till 12, lunch till 1, class till 3-4, study till 6, family time/dinner 6-8, study 8-10:30, then finally sleep. Then Saturday and even Sunday were filled with study time. I have had to do this as we are getting 5.5 times the amount of information that our sister school in AZ (ASDOH) is getting in a day, in other words what we were being taught in a day, they would have a week to learn it. We had a test every third day. We just finished 5.1 credit hours in 2 weeks. If we are to keep this pace, that would put us at 40.8 credit hours this first semester. INSANE! In other words, this is going to be my life for a while. I remember that one of the doctors I worked with would tell me how they had 26 credit hours one semester, if only I could have it that way! We just finished our intro to Embryology/Histology, Immunology, Microbiology, and Pathology classes. Tomorrow we start Molecular Cell Biology. Who's jealous?

Emily drove down to Columbia, MO (1.5 hours away) with the babies just so she could go to Sam's Club where she stayed for a whopping 30 minutes and came right back home because the babies were not having it, she did say that life was so much more fast paced, and she almost missed the pace of Kirksville. How about that? She's a country girl!
