My Young Man



My youngest, Sam had a "Meet the author" night at school last night. His advance class has been working on a project for quite a while. They each wrote a book about an animal of their making. The teacher sent the story along with illustrations to a publisher and had a hard back book made! Last night each of the students read an excerpt from their book. They also created a PowerPoint story relating to their animal. It was really cool to see. I can't believe what children do today at such a young age!

What a good looking boy. And well done, that is a great achievement.
Oh, can i ask, what kind of nursing do you do ~ area you work in?

Dana said...

Amanda- I am a post-op rounding RN for a group of anesthesiologists. I see everyone 24 hours after they have had anesthesia to make sure all went well! I have been a cardiac intensive care nurse and a post op anesthesia nurse as well. Oh, I was a mother/baby nurse for about 5 months before I took this present job! What type of RN are you?

Amanda said...

I work in a reception/recovery dept looking after post-op patients! We have 8 theatres and can have up to 45 patients per day.
Worked in this dept for 6 years. Before that i worked in a general surgical ward and have done some extra shifs in a Nursing home.
