This little piggy went to school.....

I have spent the last six months doing bad things to a piglet, taking pictures of it, and then posting them on the internet. Not just a few pictures mind you, but hundreds of them. 
I am waiting for the Feds to come arrest me at this point. 
 The picture above features the five lobes of the lungs. Pretty, huh?
 Here we are looking at the urogenital tract pf a female piglet.
And as I am sure you have guessed by now, this is the intestinal messentary. ( bright pink tissue connecting the small intestines) 

The good news is I made it through A & P I, II and III in six months. 

I am not out of the woods yet, I get a few months off then I am headed to A & P IV, the neck and up. 

I have three more classes, spring quarter, and I will have my associates and all my prerequisites done. I have my interview for the program on April 6th. It will be four hours long with an exam to follow. 

School and kids activity took away any kind of spare time. Ike advanced to the rank of Life scout and is in free style wrestling and loving it. Daniel just passed his Eagle board of review so in a few months (  it takes a while for all the paperwork to get signed by all the right people) we will plan his Eagle Court of Honor. Jacob, Maria, and Anna (health permitting) are signed up for soccer this spring. They need another volunteer coach and I am debating. I don't want them to not have a team because they did not have enough coaches. 

Still working with the 8 yr old boys as their Den Mother. 

Ben is working at the new Walmart in the grocery. They treat him pretty good there. He gets Sunday's off and anytime he requests a day off they are good about giving it to him. He misses me, I have been here, but not here. Usually with my nose buried in a text book for hours on end.

Well that is about it.
