Hello, my name is April Pattenaude and I am very excited to go on the adventures in this class.

A bit about myself: This is my second semester back at ICC in the last 8 years.  I am grateful to get a second chance at coming back.  I am attending college to become a Registered Nurse.  I love to help others and want to do what I can for the people that need medical care. 

I have lived in this area all of my life.  All of my family lives here except a few uncles.  My husband wants to move to Florida but I told him I wouldn't go until our kids are older and I graduate from college(I still don’t know if I can go and leave my family J). 

I am a wife to a wonderful man whom I have been with for 8 years.  We have three wonderful children, our oldest will be 15 in September.  She is starting high school this August and it makes me feel old.  Our middle daughter will be 13 in October and our son will be 7 in November.  My family is my life and they mean everything to me.  Between my husband and our kids we keep very busy.  My husband races RC buggies every weekend in Peoria.  I love it so much that I go out on the track and marshal.  I also pit for my husband and the man who runs the races.  I don’t have it all down pat yet but I must say that I am getting pretty good at it.  My kids are in sports year round.  My oldest is in volleyball, track, softball, and soccer.  My middle daughter is in soccer, volleyball, and softball.  My son is in soccer and t-ball. He is getting an electric buggy and is going to start racing next year. 

I love to read novels but ever since having kids it was hard for me to take time out to read until last semester.  I took Stephanie’s reading class and we had to read two novels.  It made me remember just how much I loved to read.  I am glad to be back into reading novels again.

April, I learned some new things about you!
Now, I need you to talk in this blog about the places you're traveling based on the books you chose to read this summer. Take a look at the second part of my blog. Go ahead and add the information. Then, let me know so I can take another look.
