     I made it.  Yesterday was my first day of student teaching, and I am so excited about it!  If the other day was any hint, I was extremely nervous about all of this.  After being in the school all day (and talking to my field placement coordinator and my supervisor), I’m leaning toward okay now.

As excited as I am, I can’t think too much about how I’m almost done, because it’s kind of sad for me!  That’s kind of a huge deal…this time two years ago, I would have run across the stage, snatched my diploma, and kept going.  I’ve been in such a great place for the past few semesters, and it’s really starting to sink in that I’m not coming back after Christmas.  I am so ready for the next stage in life, and I’m surprised that this is hard for me…but what can you do, right?

I know this isn’t the most literary thing you've ever read, and I don’t have a single picture to make it cute, but some days you just have to talk for a minute.  Today was one of those days.

Being almost done with school is really a strange place to be. I just graduated in May, and even though college was most definitely NOT my favorite thing...I was still all nostalgic about it, and now that fall is here, I don't know what to think about not returning to college again! It's weird.

Hey, Allyson! I think Bethany felt the same way as she started a real teaching job! It's a strange place to be for moms too! You'll do great!
