Exit Exam

Well - it seems the miracles just keep coming here - I passed the exit exam!!! I might need to give a warning right now that this post might contain some bragging - I even scored in the 80th percentile of all math majors (not just math education majors) taking the test - and not just SUU students either - students from universities all over the nation!!! I can't tell you how relieved I was to get that news. I had studied every "kid sleeping" moment for almost 6 weeks - well, the last 2 weeks I was distracted by other things - in fact, I didn't even know if I was going to take the test until the week before. The timing with everything that was going on with Paige was miraculous as well - not only was I here for the test, but it was the week that I was hopeful that the tumor would turn out to be something benign - so I was able to concentrate on the test somewhat. My house was littered with papers like below for weeks.
I was able to get some use out of the forest that seems to be coming home in the boys backpacks daily. Now all I have to do to get the paper that says I can be a teacher is to do my student teaching - well, I have a few more papers to turn in for the classes I'm in right now as well. However - this is my last week of school - and I don't have any finals - yep, you read that right - my final for the block is to watch the movie "To Sir, With Love" and write a 2 page paper on it. So this weekend I am going to celebrate by reading a book - it has been quite a while since I have had that luxury. I was going to ask for suggestions on a good book, but I just saw that Ally's new book Matched came out today and I think I talked Brittnie into letting me read her copy before she does :). However, if you do want to leave a comment with a book suggestion - I might be needing another book before the break is over. I am now feeling bad about bragging - I know that I had heavenly help during the test, I really did have inspiration on many questions that at first I didn't even know where to start. There were also a lot of questions where I narrowed the answer down to 2 choices, but must have made some lucky guesses. I know that my prayers have been answered yet again!
