It has been a busy, fun summer.
After substitute teaching a few times last year, I decided to get my teaching certification. I enrolled in a program, took 27 online courses, and started studying for my teacher certification exam. I got up early and stayed up late studying so that I could have fun with the littles during the day. I had a lot of mommy guilt when I was studying during their waking hours.
On Wednesday, when my brain was at capacity, and I wanted to let my creative energy flow, I decided to bake cookies. A quick look at my Cookies Board on Pinterest landed me on these cookies by Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. Given how much I adore Kristan, her blog, and, especially, her growing baby bump, I knew that these cookies would be just what I needed to get me over the studying hump and ready for the exam.
It looks like I was right. I took the exam on Thursday and received my results on Friday. All of the hours of hard work paid off, and I passed the exam. Now I can breathe a sigh of relief and just focus on my littles…and bake many more batches of cookies…for the next 8 weeks of summer break.
