If you know me in real life, you've heard me "complain" about my husband being in school since the begining of time. I do it jokingly most of the time.
He has been in school 4 years. He has gone very part time until very recently. The last couple of semesters he has carried a heavier load, but still not a full time load. He took a semester off when each of our children were born as well. So it's been a long process. He has to take a couple more classes next semester and he will be finished with his core courses and in the Fall will enter the Education Program through NWACC and the UofA. He'll do one very full time year of classes and the following year will be student teaching and a few more classes.
We're very excited to be this close to the end. It's been challanging in a lot of ways having him in school. But I'm so proud of him for sticking with it.
He already works in a classroom setting, as a teacher's aide. He's really good at his job. He is GREAT with kids. He's so gentle and patient. I mean, really, he spends his days with a room full of 5 year olds....I'd want to pull my hair out.
Anyway, I wanted to brag on him a bit--he's a wonderful husband, super great dad, working full time while going to school. I love you honey--and am SO proud of you.
He had these pictures taken a couple weeks ago for a project for one of his classes, so I thought I'd share them. Isn't he cute?!!?! ha!
