You can call me Master D

On December 15th I graduated from Bellarmine University with my Masters in elementary education.  This has been a work in progress for two and a half years.  Since I was a little girl I dreamed about teaching and having students of my own, but it wasn't until 2008 that I decided to make that dream a reality.  Because Matt was in law school at the time, I continued to work full time and pursued my degree with classes on nights and the weekends.  I was exhausted to say the least (and I was prego for more than half of my time as a student), but I never once regretted my decision to go back to school.  Now that it is finished, I am enjoying my time as a mommy.  My day as a teacher will come, but I have decided to teach some at home :)  Here are some pictures from my big night. 

*If I look exhausted in these pictures it is because I was.  Graduation was the same day we left the Children's Hospital after Harrison decided to eat metal....more to come on this story!!  Needless to say sleep at a hospital with nurses waking up your one year old every hour is, um...nonexistent!

We were soooo ready for our comfy beds, but my boys were there to cheer me on!

My wonderful support system minus two beautiful sisters :)

Blowing kisses to my sweet boys.
