Celebrate! We did it!

On Wednesday night, I turned in my last assignment for a full time load of graduate classes this summer.   I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  My friend and I have been approved to graduate in December.  

WE did it.  

No, I didn't cheat.  :)

But I didn't do this on my own.  

My family was literally by my side this summer as I spent up to 5 or 6 hours a day working.  When you are 6 and 10, that is BORING.  They were amazing, even when I forgot they were.  (Also, I think Mamas and Daddies or any Caregivers should get extra GPA points.  Not to undermine the work for anyone, but to type a Leadership Model for Teaching with this kid jabbering his thoughts in my ear??? did take some extra effort.)  :)

I have a Super Colleague by my side as we go through this journey together.  The funny text messages, the encouragement.  Oh Yeah, and the getting us to graduate in the Fall!  Super Indeed!

I celebrate my friends who sent great texts like, "You got this" at just the right moment.  It did not go unnoticed.  

My husband, who went right out and got wings and pizza and cracked a beer open for me as soon as it was over on Wednesday.  It was just such an act of love at that time.  There's no one else I would have wanted to be with at that moment.  

1 class left. We did it!



  1. Hurrah, and congratulations to you and your colleague! And how wonderful to celebrate with your aides too. Family support is the best!

  2. Congratulations! I think this is a perfect celebration. I love the way it is a celebration of family support. Thanks for writing this weekend.
    Shine on,

  3. I couldn't wait to see what "we did." Congrats to you and all your buddies who encouraged you. I remember doing graduate school in the summers when my two were little. It's tough when mom has homework in the summertime. Congrats!

  4. Congratulations! I got my teaching degree with kids, so I know how hard it is going to school and keeping up with family! But YOU DID IT!
