As Always, My Hero

After a year and a half of hard work and a lot of blood, sweat and tears on the part of my husband, I am overjoyed to announce that HE PASSED HIS NATIONAL BOARDS!!!!!

This is a HUGE accomplishment in the teaching community. Only 1/3 of all participants pass in their first year and while the national recognition is nice, it also means a big, fat bonus guaranteed to him for the next ten years.

For those who know Brad, you know how easygoing and completely chill he is and I can honestly say that this is the most nervous I have ever seen him. While he completed the bulk of the work during last year's school year, he took the test in May and we have been waiting ever since to hear the news. This man has lost countless hours of sleep worrying about this and while I always knew he would excel, I'm glad he knows for sure now.

I am so incredibly proud of you. Once again, you have gone above and beyond for our family and your hard work paid off. You are the most amazing man and I love you dearly.

Congratulations Rizz!

(This also means there is a ticket to Twilight available for tonight if anyone wants it. I'll be out celebrating with my husband!)
