The College Graduate

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my
Bachelors Degree in Applied Science: Early Childhood

Guess what that means?! No more homework!! No more assignments !! No more tests!! No more textbooks!! No more stress!!

It definitely wasn't easy. I couldn't have done this without the help of Kyle watching Macy while I went to night classes and all the support he gave me in helping me with homework when I was stressed BUT most of all, I couldn't have done it without my parents. Between Biology and a new baby there were a few times when I really thought I was going to stop. I would tell Kyle "I'm done, I'm so done- I can't pass biology!!" and he would say "Yeah right, are you going to tell your Dad?" then I was say "Ugh- no, I'm just gonna stop and not tell him" then Kyle would laugh and say "Sure- you're not gonna stop going because you'd be too scared to tell your Dad." I always knew I was expected to go to college and to be honest I don't think I would have if there wasn't that expectation. I think it's a very good thing that my parents held high expectations because it helped me accomplish something that I didn't realize was that important. Even though I don't plan on working, there is such a good feeling knowing that if Kyle was unable to work, I have a degree to fall back on. Thanks Mom and Dad for all your hard work, energy, stress, and funds to get me through school! :) I really really really appreciate it.
