Graduation Day

Today is Graduation Day. Thanks to the age of technology I am able to still watch and feel a part of the commencement today, via live web cam. It has been a long road to finish up my teaching degree, but today I can say I have finished. It is a lifelong dream that I have had, since a small child to be a teacher. I have worked in that role all my life, whether as a Junior Kindergarten Teacher, Substitute Teacher or a Mom, but now I actually have the degree to back it up.

I now possess a few degrees....AA in Education from Crafton Hills College, BA in Liberal Arts from Cal State San Bernardino, and Post Baccalaureate Teacher Preparation Program-Elementary Education. I am hoping to be able to have my own classroom this Fall, which would be the culmination of all this hard work.

One Warm Day in February

A few days ago, we had an unusual day where the temp was 65 degrees!! Being it has been bitterly cold winter, Carlie and I enjoyed the day and went to the beach on base for some fun.

Love the colors in this picture!

It was wonderful to not have to wear a coat and be able to soak in the warm sun!

Pajama Glam Party

A group of us got together to throw a pajama glam party for Shawn. Shawn has been battling cancer for several years, and we wanted to show her how much we love and support her.
Everyone came in their pjs...glammed up of course, and we had a
great time dipping in the chocolate fountain and watching a movie.
