I am a MASTER!

I started a masters program in 2006 when I decided to get my teaching license and as of today I am officially DONE with the MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching) degree!!  I'm not going to lie, it has been extremely difficult to stay motivated to work on a long paper this summer.  But, you only have 6 years to finish the degree once you start and Fall of 2012 is sure coming up soon!  I really just wanted to be done with it so that once the babies come I can concentrate on them! 

I am also very excited about my upcoming  trip to Minnesota.  My sister is so thoughtful and is throwing me not one, but two baby showers!  Her house cannot accommodate a ton of people, so she is throwing one shower for my mom's side and another for my dad's side.  I don't get a chance to see all of my extended family that often (usually only at Christmas) so it will be really nice to see everyone and catch up. 

When I get back from the trip, I am going to have to spend all of my time getting ready for the babies!!  Our basement is getting close to completion (thank goodness) and soon I will be able to get the nursery cleared out and get things put back in the basement where they belong.  I am also planning on having a garage sale to get rid of anything that is unnecessary.  Our house is cluttered with our stuff now and we really need to make room for all of the baby stuff!  I know that we will have a lot to get ready, but its nice to be able to shift my attention from getting my degree to getting ready for babies!!
