I just have to say how proud I am of Orion. He probably does not think it is such a big deal, but I think it is huge. After four plus year of marriage he has finally started working towards a degree! With a second child on the way and working full time. Sure it would have been easier for him to go to school when we first got married, like I did but he did not want to then. He finally decided on his own that he should work towards a degree. I am so excited! I love school and I hope he does too. I hope our children love school and continue to learn throughout their lives.
With the job he has he does not need a degree because all of his training in on the job, but in order to promote having a degree makes you look better. So here we are working towards a degree as a family. It is funny that I graduated with my degree before Adilyn was born and have not "worked" a day since. My degree sits in its frame on our book case collecting dust. However, I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to earn my degree before we had kids. That way if I ever need to get a job I will have the knowledge I need to help get a good one. Until then I have the best job around, being a stay at home mom.
I know we have a long road ahead of us before Orion earns his degree, but I look forward to the journey ahead of us. Now he has a little team of cheerleaders cheering him on. He will do great I am sure of it.
