I wish Connor the best in Boston, and glad the other is in remission.

In your downsizing efforts don't forget they're only away about 32-33 weeks of the year; the rest of the time the dorms close and they are out of there, so you may want to be sure you still have room for him!

Stacy-Your work is gorgeous! I hope you get some good news about Connor's situation and that some grants and scholarships head his way!


Moss- I believe too many people get loans and start their young lives off in major debt. It stinks but it's the American way!

It truly depends - state schools around here are state-funded so they're less; probably $15-20K including everything per year (tuition, fees, room, board, books, etc.). Private schools can ask what they want. M@ definitely wouldn't be going where he is (pretty much does take all of my salary/year) if I didn't have my inheritance to help, but since I do and it was THE school he wanted to attend (and it looks like it has just what he wants and needs), we're doing it. I am NOT borrowing on the house principal or retirement or anything like that - many people do that and I find that a little kooky since their child has a lot of earning time left and they don't in comparison. JMHO.

Stacy, that is wonderful news that Connor has been accepted into the top two schools on his list! How long does he have to decide?

Congratulations on your exhibitions! I love your work. I wish I had talent like that! I hope you get that wall space for your work. Has the exposure helped you sell any pieces?

State costs depend on what part of the country you live in.

I agree, if you can afford it, do it. We have more of this to consider at high school level. Do we pay for that so she has a better chance of getting the grades and necessary background to fully benefit from university which may or may not still be free once DD goes! Or do we go for the free things in life?
