I am going back with a vengance

I registered for my fall classes this morning and I will be taking a very full load of 4 classes. Yikes!! I only have 7 classes total that I need to graduate from TMCC and then on to UNR for thier ECE program. Hopefully if all goes well and I pass all these last 7 classes I will be graduated this time next year. I am excited about that but I know it's a long road ahead with lots of papers, reading, studying with interruptions, time away from social things I would rather be doing and just general stuff that you sacrifice to be a student. The pay off is worth it. I am going to need the money being as how my kids are entering double digit numbers rather quickly and soon to be eating us out of house and home.
I will enjoy this summer so much more knowing what I have ahead and how much work next year will entail. I am glad that although I am registered and set to go I have a few months still of leisurely living.

maybe we should start a small group... moms in school.
with a focus on studying...don't think that would work though.

YAY! YOU CAN DO IT!! I am taking 'Teaching Elementary Math' and I completely LOVE it. We colored our first night of class, wrote a poem about the distributive property, and taught our classmates HOW to teach their students to write simple math lessons dealing with patterns. I graduate in 23 more classes! Baby steps. Baby steps. My last class is August 2010. Oh so far away.

Enjoy the summer, Noel. It will just be a season and it will seem to fly by at the end. Although, I agree, some classes are difficult and seem to go on forever when you are in the midst of them!

Good luck with the school. 4 classes is quite a load. I've thought about continuing but it's not realistic at this point in life. Have you applied for any scholarships? You may be able to get some good ones since you have 4 kids.

OMGosh........I won't say "Are you nuts?" because that wouldn't sound encouraging. I'll just say, "Way to go, Noel!!! You are amazing!" And that is true too!

laura- don't think it will work either. maybe we need more of a support group. iwill be taking eng 102 as well as nutr 121,and hdfs 232 and spanish. i keep wanting to change spanish to italian cause i said that's what i want to do but i think spanish will help me more.
i take math 120 in the spring another spanish class and one more ECE class and then I am done, if I pass that is. then onto UNR for a year. Yippee.
shontell- i am glad you are enjoying your classes this could be why we haven't been on nearly enough dates this year. i am getting jealous of the Univ of Ph.
Baby steps is right.
erica- will enjoy it, so looking forward to it that the kids count down on the fridge is more for me than for them.
ben- yep, but then my kiddos will all be in school so i will have lot's o free time. i payed my dues. baby days are hard to be in school but it can be done as your wifee so wonderfully is accomplishing.
allie- WOW allie , "WOW, that was just about all she could say WOW!!"
