I am in my second year of night school. I work full time and have three very active kids (scouts, band, ect) It is all in how bad you want it and what you want. I still manage to lead my daighter's girl scout troop and chaperone my son's marching band. Difference now is I carry flash cards and cassete tapes with me everywhere. When we go camping, I get to take an extra bag - my school books. In many ways I am setting an example for my older kids because they see how hard I work and they are learning that sometimes when you want something, you have to really work and sacrifice for it. As for my youngest son, 6 yrs, he and I catch time reading on the nights I am home and the weekends. The key is having a family that supports you. If my husband and kids didn't understand how important this is to me, I couldn't make it. It is tougher than anything I have ever done, but in the end, it will be worth it.
