I graduated from Arkansas Tech University at Russellville. It was mandatory that I participate in the ceremony. We left the house at 9am and didn't get home until 6pm. It was a long boring day. Russellville is about 90 miles from my house, but it's a very curvy road. Mason got car sick on the way there, but we know to take an ice cream bucket or coffee can when we travel. They all slept on the way home. I was worried about the kids being restless in the stands. My folks weren't able to come because of Mom's illness so my husband had them on his own.
We ate out twice and that was fun. I can't believe how much the kids ate at lunch! We all ordered kids meals for dinner and the kids weren't able to finish theirs.
I graduated Cum Laude, even though I have to look up how to spell it every time. I was .008 away from Magna Cum Laude. I should be proud but I keep thinking how just a little extra push would have been enough to get me there. I had a fancy gold cord that I was really proud of. The kids were well behaved and when I looked at my husband sitting in the stands I could see that he was very proud of me. I had to stop looking at him or I would have cried.
4 ½ years behind me. That's nearly all of little Max's life. He's so happy that I'm done with homework.
I came to lit net to see what people had to say about the things I was reading for school. It was helpful, but not really that much. Mostly I found lit net to be friendly. There are many of you that I feel like I know personally even though we are just cyber friends. Sometimes I feel silly when I talk about one of you as if you are my neighbor. I love you guys. Many of you have been so supportive of me during the difficulties I've face balancing family and college. I appreciate every kind and encouraging word.
