It’s Day 5 of the 30 Day Blog Challenged – My proudest moment
There have been quite a few proud moments along the way that come to mind. I have been proud of myself, proud of my children, and proud of my husband. I can’t just pick ONE moment.
I would have to say the moment I am most proud of myself for, is graduating Palmer College of Chiropractic. I started school with a 4 month old little boy, and finished with a 4 yr old, a 2 yr old, and a newborn. It was incredibly tough to go through school with children, AND a husband who was also going through school. It was a hard time in our lives, but we made it!
I am also very proud of my husband for making it through Palmer as well. He worked very hard and overcame a lot of self doubt! He got better grades than I did! (It helps when you have a built in tutor ). He is now practicing full time and he is VERY good at what he does. He has a great heart for this profession and is helping a lot of people!
I am also extremely proud of my kids! They work hard to accomplish goals that they set and I am so proud of them for it. My son wanted to try wrestling. I was a little hesitant since I have no clue about wrestling, but we gave it a try. He was in kindergarten when we started. He was a big kid and he was the youngest in his age range. So he was going up against kids that were much older than he was and who had been in wrestling for a long time.
In wrestling, you are all alone on that mat. When you make a mistake, there is only you who can fix it. There is no team to bail you out. My Ben stuck with the sport for the season, even though he did not win one match. If he did not get pinned during the match, it was a good day! I am so proud he stuck with it and kept trying, even though he knew he wouldn’t win.
He is so darn cute in his singlet!
There are little moments that come up in every day life that make me extremely proud of my family. Our family continues to strive to learn from our mistakes, and make each other proud. From sports, to dance, to school. I will always be proud of whatever my kiddos do!
