wheww! I passed my practical

It was a snowy night in which we headed up to Brigham city.  We were to spend the night in a hotel to awake after a restless nights sleep.  The alarm went off at 5:45 so that we could be ready for my 7:00 exam.  We went to the testing location and checked in.  About 30 girls and I were nervously waiting for our exam to begin.  We started with our first task and I quickly felt at ease as we hurried on from one task to another.  Before we new it, and after 4 hours of doing hair and nails on mannequins in front of a proctor watching every move we made, we were finished.  I was relieved to be done but not yet satisfied with my performance until now, 11 days later when I received "the letter" in the mail.  Valerie Ehat...blah blah blah...Congratulations you have passed with a score of...98%.  Now, I know, some of you may say "come on, its only hair."  But, after almost 2 years of school and 1600 (so far) hours of school I am proud to say that this part is finished and I am that much closer to being done with school. YAY!  Now, on to the next exam and 400 more hours of school...

What a releif it will be to be done. And in the tone you use to say to Rylie, "I'm so proud of you!" Really I am.

Thanks McKenna. I'm happy to be done. Unfortunately they don't tell you what you messed up on...just the score. Good enough for me though. I wish you were here so I could do your hair. We really miss you guys. Do you think you will be able to come out this summer to meet the babies?
