I might be crazy!

I have always wanted to finish college but have put it off long enough! I am finally going back after 6 long years! I am finishing my associates this summer and starting at ASU to do my bachelors next fall. This should give me enough time to get my bachelors before Mike is a Dr (sad huh). I feel pathetic for not doing this so much earlier but I think it is my nature to take the harder route. I am going to be having a baby during or right before finals next semester so it should be interesting. I just can't keep looking back and keep saying "I should have" this time I am going to make it happen before it gets even harder. Wish me luck....I will need it!

Look at you being so ambitious. I'm also kind of at that place in my life where I'm thinking about going back to school. But, I'm not as brave as you. Best of luck!!

Way to go! If you don't do it now, it will get harder to do with every kid you have. Unless you wait until they are all grown and out of the house, then you can all graduate from college together, sort of like Logan and Mark will be doing! ha ha! Can't wait to see you in November!

I am going to do most of my classes online but will take some at ASU. It is going to be a bachelor's of liberal studies. It is mostly a behavioral science degree with a mix of history. I talked to the advisor today and I am excited to get started. It will be nice to be able to stay home with my babies and still get it done. I am just nervous about how it will all work out and making sure I have enough time for my kids but if I do it now then Mike and I will be done with school at the same time and then we can enjoy life and not have to worry about school ever again. Yah!

That's so cool. You'll be happy you did it. So many people with kids just don't do it. That's awesome.

Hey Val! It's Fia! I don't know if you remember me, but Meg told me that you had joined the blogging world! Me too...isn't it so fun! It's crazy who you run into blogging! I love your page, and congrats on going back to school. I think it's so awesome! Your little guy is so dang cute, and I love the name Emerson! I hope you don't mind if I stop in every now and then to see what you're up to! Love ya,

I think that's great your going to finish! After being married for 3 years I FINALLY decided to go back to college and finish my BS degree and I've only got one semester left. That first day back is so wierd I'm not going to lie. I remember thinking, "I have homework to do? Wierd." I am so excited to have found you out here in the internet world! I am so happy to see you and Mike together with an adorable baby boy to boot! I want to know how you stay so tiny by the way! Emerson is so precious and I'm excited to hear what your having next! (congrats on baby #2!) Please keep in touch, I'd love to hear what you've been up to! Sounds like you have a lot on your plate.
