R & C are ready to go back to school, and B is ready to start school. In fact, C was upset the other night because school won't start right now. All 3 of them will have to wait though, since they don't go back until August 17. R will be going into 4th grade, C into full day Kindergarten, and B into Pre-K for a whole 2 hours and 15 minutes a day.
I, on the other hand, am a different story. I have been talking for a few years about going back to school, but I have finally buckled down and took that plunge. My classes start in 7 days! I will be going for my Associates in Paralegal Studies (but do plan on getting a bachelors sometime after that), through Kaplan University. I will be taking 2 classes online every 10 weeks, with 8 days off in between.
I know it will be a challenge, but I am up for it. I plan on doing my work and studying while B is in school for his 2 hours and 15 minutes a day, then do some more after all 3 kids are in bed for the night. And since the kids are now spending weekends with their dad, that gives me all weekend to myself to study. So I should be able to get in quite a bit of study time...at least once the kids start school next month. Until they go back to school the plan is to get up a little earlier in the mornings to get some studying done before they wake up, then do some after they go to bed, and on weekends. Since C & B love to sleep in, it should be no problem having some study time in the mornings.
So I will be blogging about the joys, challanges, etc that come from being a F/T mom and student
