Thanks everyone! Of course, when it is time for me to do classwork, I will have to boot him off of the computer, since we only have one at the moment! All of the teachers are getting a laptop though, so I can bring it home and do some of my work on there.

Barbara, James will be OK. Support is one of the things that all of us at DC are great at. Good luck on your paper. My aunt is a teacher in Kansas and she just got her Masters this last year. Kudos to you for going for your Masters. When I got my Bachelors my grandpa asked me if I was going to get my masters. I said no way. I just wanted to start putting my education to use and make money instead of spending money.

I decided to go for it now for a couple reasons. My teaching certificate expires June 30th and I needed a couple classes to renew it. Also, having my master's will increase my pay. Now that I am in the classes though, I am really enjoying them (even though they are frustrating me a lot too!).

I think it is very wise of you to go for the Masters. My son is working on his now and it isn't as easy as it was before he had children. He must really have time to work on it. - and leave time for his family also.

I don't think I could have done it while raising my daughter. I would have probably ended up being the world's worst mom during that time. Now I just have to worry about being the world's worst wife!

My aunt really enjoyed continuing her education even with 5 kids from 8 - 20 years old. Your smileys might not be working because you need to empty your cookies in your internet browser. It happened to me once and that was the problem.

No, the smiley thing was just a glitch last night. It has happened once before. Luckily it doesn't seem to last long.
