A whoot whoot for my hubby real quick: Tim finished his last "school class" of med school today. Crazy. We find out later today what his rotation (working in hospitals and clinics) schedule will be like for all of year 3, so we are pretty anxious! He has some tests in a couple of weeks that completely wrap up year 2 of med school, and then he'll take a solid month to finish studying for the BIGGEST test of his life. He takes it at the beginning of April. It is called Step One and will determine a lot of our future. If he does really well on it, he will be a competitive applicant for Orthopedic Surgery when we apply at the beginning of year 4. Orthopedics is one of the most competitive fields out there, so it is crucial he do well on this test. Tim has been studying for this Step One test for over a year. He does anywhere from 150-200 + flashcards DAILY going through all of the material he will be tested on. Not to mention the 1 hour segmented tests he takes several times a week with test material on them. I'm sure he will rock the test, he deserves it!
Sometimes I sit watching him go through the flashcard after flashcard quietly mumbling to himself as he says the answer and want to throw up. He works so so so hard and is so motivated, it really does make me sick... no not really! I am so proud of him and am so blessed to have such a diligent student as my husband and as Max's Daddy. Way to go very soon to be Dr. Ashworth!!
Here is some of Max and the happy spot he is to us:
|Big Boy Bed!!!|
|Making a Play-dough snowman with Daddy. I got home from somewhere to find|
that Tim had done a photo shoot of him and the killer snowman (the odd looking colorful figure to Max's right). It is moments like that,
that make life really, really good :).
|Max's "fake" smile he does more often that not for pictures now...lovely.|
|More of the V-day Party. Since our house is about as big as a doll house, I opted|
to do it at our local Institute Building. That carpet was covered in frosting after, but we
got rid of our evidence pretty good!
