back in the saddle



i know..i'm crazy, but i just started this week on a master's program through ASU online. it's a masters in Instruction and Curriculum for Early Childhood Education. my undergrad is in early childhood education...and i've always wanted to get my masters so on a whim in november i applied and got in! i have really always wanted to teach on the college level (although i did love my kindergarten and first grade classes). i think 1 or 2 college classes a year is much more on my level of working now that i have 3 littles of my own. i really enjoy staying home with them, and would like to be with them as much as possible.

also, i love the dr. laura show, and have secretly always wanted to be a "dr. lara" too. a master's is really one more step toward that doctorate (which is really my end goal). i know, like i said before, i'm crazy. so we'll see how this next year and a half goes. i will graduate the same time as matt! YIPPPEEEEE! (we better be going on some sweet graduation trip when we are done is all i have to say!)
