Midsummer Has Arrived

By Leigh Ann Eckols

Midsummer has arrived. I am enjoying the sun and being able to complete school work without the competition of my job. There is more time to read and complete assignments during the day. That means I can enjoy the nights, but there is breathing room in case there is something fun during the day. There are many options during the summer to complete my assignments! By this time next summer, I will be wrapping up my degree and that is exciting to know. My family continues to be very supportive and patient as I continue this journey. I am thankful for them and their patience.
