Well not yet but almost! The whole reason we moved to Colorado was for me to begin pursuit of my PhD in psychology. Well that was 5 and 1/2 years ago and it is about time that I get that degree in hand! It's not that I have not been doing anything, it's just that when I started working as a full-time school psychologist two years ago the dissertation took the backseat. So I am pleased to say that after some inspiration, and 220 pages later, I am done writing! I will officially defend my dissertation to my faculty committee on April 29th, at which time they will reccommend more changes that I will make, then I will make more changes in formatting for the graduate school and when all the paperwork is in check I will officially have a PhD degree in hand. What I am most excited about is that I will get to walk through the graduation ceremony this spring and both of my children will be there to watch. I can't believe how much my son has grown in the last 5 years. All he remembers is mommy being a graduate student, but this does not seem to be such a bad thing as he thinks it is completely normal to pursue lifelong education.
And so here he is at the start of my PhD program:
And here he is this fall/winter. I think he has grown a bit?
