I'm so excited! Going back to school!

And yep, I'm yelling!

Okay, I mentioned before that I am going back to school to get my IBCLC. I am taking a couple of "recommended" classes like Soc. & Psych., but I needed another component which I was going to buy modules for and would have cost me over $1000.

I found a course at Wichita State taught by an AMAZING woman who I have always been a big fan (and in awe) of. She's one of the leading authorities in the technical/practical lactation field.

Well, classes already started at WSU and enrollment was "iffy". I finally talked the lady in the admissions office into letting me do it today after she wasn't very positive about it at first. She called me back and said how she could tell how much I wanted to take this class and she got them to make an exception as far as late enrollment, but that I would need to see if I could get a spot.

I had been emailing back and forth with Dr. Riordan to find out more about the course, and I told her this am of my predicament and asked for the honor to be included in her class. She said YES and told them to add me!!!!!

I am so excited and I cannot believe I was able to pull it off. Now let's hope I can keep up with the class!!!! It's 3 credit hours, so I have gone from no school to trying to do 9 credit hours this semester!!!

After I pass her class, I will have everything i need to sit for the Boards. I never thought this would be.
