Wow, so many excellent responses. Thank you all for your input.
To address some of the points raised here, i'll go in no particular order.
Yes, i know children are resilient and they will ultimately be better for their dad going to law school. But i am a dad, and the thought of my children missing out on anything causes me worry. This alone will not prevent me from going forward with the process, but is just one of those things in the back of my mind.
As to why law school has always been an unfulfilled ambition of mine, that's somewhat of an intereting story (to me anyway). In college, i had two ambitions - law school and/or to enter my current career. I chose first to enter my current career because it was more immediately attainable and because i was ready for a break from school. Next thing i know, ten years have gone by in my current career. Then i got to thinking about my other ambition -law school. As much as i love my job and the success and satisfaction it has brought me, i would regret not at least trying for law school. So, as i said earlier, my wife and i have been discussing the option for the last two or three years.
Finally, my co-workers and i have a motto that we have taken as our credo "Acta non Verba" - Actions not words. Not unlike what Momo09 is saying, huh? Guess i better get to studying. September always sneaks up on me.
