Going back to college after 20 years

I have made the decision to go back to college and get a degree. I am going for Medical Assisting and I start on April 5th. Orientation is on April 1st. I'm kind of nervous since I have been out of school for so long, I am aboit to attend my 20 year high school reunion in July.

My daughter was a huge motivator in my choice. She has been suggesting it for years. For the last 4 months, I have worked a day or two here and there due to not having any work (worked in my Dads construction company). I felt it was time for a change and my husband said do whatever I felt best. With my youngest now 11, why not go back to school? So, within a few hours I toured the campus, enrolled, aced the entrance exam and filed for my grants and student loans. When I came home that evening and told my husband and kids, they were so excited. That made me feel very confident that I will succeed with no problems. They are behind me 100%. I am super excited about starting and can hardly wait! I don't think the 1st will ever get here...

Pictures of Amelia Jane coming very soon. She's perfectly healthy and georgous! Miriah graduates in May with her first degree, then its back to school in the fall for her. She's working on a Masters in English. Wants to work on forensic linguistics specialty.
