I graduated this past weekend. Two degrees - done! It's a bit surreal to think that I am now a real teacher. However, I have been subbing for the last month and a half (ie. no longer teaching for free!), so that has helped solidify the concept in my mind.

You may be wondering - where is the token grad photo with Mike? With my Mom? Excellent questions. I'm afraid to say there aren't any since I accidentally booked a subbing gig for that afternoon. I had to sneak out of my grad ceremony early just to make it in time. Ha! I'm usually a bit more organized, but oh well.

That evening we went out for Indian with my family (and Mike's parents!) to celebrate. The Indian didn't go over too well with the little guys, so we went out for ice cream too. These little people bring so much joy in my life.

I owe my family, especially my Mom and Mike, a big thank you for all the support they have given me during these past six years of university!
