A Momma Brag!

The best part of having a blog is getting to tell the world about your children!

My daughter Ashley, who graduated from Stephens College in three and 1/2 years with a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Management and Marketing, has recently learned that she has been named a teaching assistant for the University of Missouri.

Woo Hoo!

(Looks like she's rather fond of things gold...)

This means that she will receive a healthy stipend and free tuition! I am so glad she does not have to take out any student loans to get her masters. For her healthy stipend, she will help a full time college professor with her undergraduate classes, either teaching a class or two, grading papers, or research materials for class. Bob and I take a strange bit of glee from the fact that Ashley will be teaching, as this is something she said she was never going to do... (Bob and I were both teachers at one time...)

Bob has three degrees from the University of Missouri, so Ashley is now following in his footsteps. I am starting to feel a little bit like a third wheel.

We are mighty proud of our little one. Go Tigers!
