So, today Meadow and I went up to Salt Lake to take the written part of the National Interpreter Certification test. This test is 150 questions and you must get a scaled score of 500 or better to pass the test. There are different categories of test questions about culture, code of ethics, interpreting situations, understand the structure of ASL, etc. Well the good news is.......

I PASSED!!!!!!

Now I just have to catch up on all my homework that I've neglected recently.... : ) p.s. Meadow passed too. We are both just that cool!

I found this email that my friend sent me one time. Once again I laughed! It's called Porn For Women:

"Hold that thought for a second. I want to pull over to ask for directions."

"I don't have to have a reason to bring you flowers"

"Don't want anyone 'falling in' in the middle of the night."

"I know. Let's take you shoe shopping!"

"Ooh, look, The NFL playoffs are today. I bet we'll have no trouble parking at the crafts fair."

"As long as I have legs to walk on, you'll never have to take out the garbage."

"Is that the baby? I'll get her."

"I made some Niman Ranch lamb tenderloin with garlic, black pepper, and Indonesian soy sauce for dinner. I hope that sounds OK."

"I like to get to these things before I have to be asked"

Hee Hee Hee.

Other news

So, I signed up for the written NIC test. That is the National Interpreter Certification test. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! The written part alone is $340. It's 150 multiple choice questions and I'm taking it on the 31st of October. LESS THAN A MONTH!!!! If/When I pass the test, I can apply for the ACIPP (Advanced Certification Interpreter Preparedness Program) for the Spring semester. Here's to hoping!

Our 500 Days of Summer

It would take far to long to tell you everything that we did this summer, so I've decided to do it unjustice by putting up lots of pictures to tell the story of our summer! Enjoy!

Nathan was a CTR 5 primary teacher

We went an visited Sarah, Matt and Ally in Wisconsin
Abby, Nathan and I went to the Henry Doorly Zoo In Omaha Nebraska

We went to Wisconsin again to see our new niece Lily Elizabeth

We went to the Iowa State Fair

(Yes, those are made out of BUTTER!!!)

We went on a cruise to Ensenada Mexico and Catalina Island

And we went to Bandon Oregon to visit Gpa and Gma Salt

Yep. That's what we did this summer.

Oh, besides work our fingers to the bone at:

SunnyView (no picture. LAME!)

We worked a lot and now we are very glad to be back in good old P-town going to school and working some more. Nathan is back at the MTC and I'm doing some private home health care.
Hooray for getting closer to graduating!
