Are your kiddos in the midst of finals? Already finished? How do/did they feel about them? Coming home at all over the holidays?
Jason had 3 finals last week, 2 written and a PCM (patient centered medicine) practical where he was required to do basic things such as check ears, heartbeat, take pulse, etc. on a standardized patient. His last (and biggest) final is his anatomy final this coming Friday afternoon.He did well on the tests last week; they were strictly pass/fail although the practical required a 95% to pass. Guess they want future doctors to really know the practical side of things, probably more so than memorizing stuff for the written exams, which makes sense. Friday's final is pass/fail, too, but you can pass with high honors, pass with honors, or just pass so it's kind of like an A/B/C thing. So fara he's passed all those with high honors so, of course, has been spending lots of time in the lab for this last one. He'll volunteer at a clinic in Chicago on Saturday and return home Saturday afternoon. Classes start back up on the 2nd. His fiance has a seasonal management job at Victoria's Secret in the town where she goes to school, about 90 miles away, so she'll be working quite a bit those 2 weeks; I imagine he'll be spending part of break down there.
Hope you all had a good weekend!
