Unwed Peg

I have been getting everyone's christmas newsletters and decided that I need one myself. What can I say? I was jealous of being able to brag about 2008. No, there were not any newborns, and no, no one was potty trained either....
I turned 30!!! Yeahhh! I have developed into a mature (or somewhat mature) woman! Does this mean my foolish antics have to end - no way! It is my nature to have very blonde moments! It is new opportunities for adventures!

In March, I visited Texas for the first time, to see the Lewis Family. I had so much fun. I also had intensive style sessions with Chiara - I am not sure how much they really improved my style - but I looked good while I was there!

I was also accepted into my student teaching program in March - which brought a smile to my face!

May brought my biggest accomplishment - Graduation from the University of Utah with my B.S.!!!! It FINALLY CAME TRUE!!!! For this, my mom flew in from Pennsylvania, and we were able to spend a week together touring Utah. I also received two scholarships for student teaching.

In July, I started Kindergarten! Really, student teaching kindergarten. I love it soooooooo much! I am at Daybreak Elementary in South Jordan with Mrs. Karren. I am now a Mrs. Karren wannabe!!!! Now, I just need a magic wand!!!

I started 2nd grade in August. What a switch! They can do things by themselves! They really are a great group of kids as well!

In October, I lost my favorite roommate, Melinda, who moved to Tennessee. I miss her sooooo!!! We shared a room for so long that I think that I still talk to her in my sleep at night!!!

December blessed with an acceptance letter to the Master's Program at the U. I was so grateful, because I had already taken the classes this semester for the program. Now, I just need to find classes for the spring! Wish me luck!!!!
