I Have an Announcement!!!

Yes, I have an announcement but I am NOT pregnat, even though that would be fun and exciting it is not my announcement.

Today, I just found out some news that I have been waiting and waiting for and figured there might be someone out there that really wants to know about it. About six weeks ago I blogged about taking the Praxis test to be an Elementary Education teacher, this is required to start the block and also for student teaching.
After I came home from the test I was about in tears because the test was very hard. I had studied for many many hours and nothing that I studied was on the test. Well, I finally received the results for that test.

I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you all heard my screaming because it was real loud. I was so excited because I seriously thought I was going to be taking it again. It cost $130 and it was very hard and stressful.

I was so excited that I was screaming and crying at the same time. I was thinking how I wished that some of you could have been here to celebrate with me.
Yes, I am very excited!!!

Ya I had no doubt in my mind you would pass it on the first try. You are such a brain and you don't give yourself enough credit. I thought it was a mini earth-quake. I guess it was just your scream of excitment. Love you sis good job I am so happy for you.

Wow, that is so exciting for you! I think I can relate to your stress of that test on a small level, I spend hours and hours studying my History and every time I get to the tests I can't for the life of me remember reading about some of the topics at all!
So glad that you passed and won't have to take it again!!!

That is such exciting news. Was there anybody there when you found out to share in the first exciting moments? I have had that happen to me and it's so much more enjoyable when there is someone there to scream with you. Good job Girl!

I can sooooooooooo relate with you. I felt EXACTLY the same way when I passed mine. I opened the letter at the mailbox and just started screaming and jumping up and down. I was so glad that I passed it on the first time also as I didn't want to have to pay again and go through all that stress. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
