I am married and have five sons ranging in age from elementary to high school. When my youngest started school, it was time for me to finish the four-year degree I started in the 90's. I balance the demands of home and family while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I have to keep myself regimented, studying and attending classes during the day, because once 2:30pm rolls around, I'm helping with homework, preparing dinner, keeping kids on task with their chores, attending school events, supervising bedtime and reading scriptures and stories. Its an 18 hour day, but I'm happy that I can pursue my higher education and develop a marketable skill while still being available for my family.
