Number 27- Check!

teacher gifts

Number 27 on my list was a pretty big goal for me since it was to begin getting my master’s degree. This week I started my first three classes of eleven.

I decided to start the University of West Alabama’s online degree program a while back, but I was waiting on getting my first year of teaching under my belt. Hopefully this will help give me a better insight when completing my course work.

I definitely would prefer to have this completed before Colby and I make the choice to have children. I can’t imagine coming home to a baby and papers to write. If that were the case, I have a feeling not many people would like me very much since I would be extremely tired all of the time. I want to be able to come home and enjoy my children one day without having to worry about course work.

Now, I know some of you are wondering about the picture at the top! Isn’t that the cutest?!?! I’m thinking I need to make one for my classroom! Maybe when Wal-Mart puts all of their supplies on sale {a.k.a. teacher heaven}….

Happy Thursday!


  1. Good luck on getting your masters! You'll be so glad you did it later, I promise! And worst case scenario, it won't be the end of the world if you have to change diapers and do it from home. I was in grad school with a mom of a 3 year old that was pregnant and we were in the hardest grad program at Alabama. I have full faith in you!!!

  2. Good luck! I know you will do great. I have the same feelings about graduate school and motherhood. I cannot imagine trying get this Ph.D. while taking care of little ones. I'm so tired now. The thought of having anything else on my plate right now just blows my mind. Although, I sure do look forward to the baby stage in our lives. :)
