Sept. 15, 2011, Lucas and I quit our jobs to finish up school. This past January, we both started student teaching at Southwest High School here in San Antonio. It was pretty nice being at the same high school since we could carpool together and save on gas.
In January we both took the PPR (Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities) EC-12 exam and passed. Then in April, we took our content exams and successfully passed those as well. whew! We both graduated this past May with our bachelors degrees and we couldn't be happier to be done with school! Well, at least until we start working on our Masters :) Here's a few pictures for everyone who couldn't make it.
Lucas graduated with a bachelors of science in Math from the University of Texas, San Antonio.
Graduated with honors. So proud of him!
I graduated from Texas A&M University, San Antonio, with a bachelors of science in Biology. Our graduations were a week apart so we were both able to attend each other's commencement ceremonies.
My pink, zebra striped graduation cap. I love how it turned out. And yes, those amazing leopard heels have faces on them! How awesome is that? Thanks Toya, I am still in love with these heels :)
Summa Cum Laude
Thanks LeeAnne and Trevor for coming out to celebrate with us!
I thought this random shot was hilarious. Look at our faces. lol.
Isn't our god-daughter precious? Love her boots!
To celebrate our graduations, we went to the lake and had Crawfish & Shrimp Boil. It was delish!!
Lucas's first boil. It turned out great!
The feast! Shrimp, crawfish, corn, potatoes, and onions. Plus butter to drizzle over everything. It was sooo good.
Great way to celebrate and kick-start the summer.
