I told Jordyn last year I was going to make her sit down and fill out the tax forms with me, just so she could see how it was done.  But she was so busy last year we never got around to it and I did it quick.  This year I was thinking the same thing, but agian, she is so darned busy.  I've already had to "schedule her services" to do facepainting at Emma's birthday party in April.  I am not sure yet which weekend we are going to do it, but luckily she is done with cheer by then and prom isn't until the weekend after the 2 I was thinking for Emma's party.   However, I just looked up the acrobatic and tumbling schedule, I know she'll plan on being up at Baylor to watch them when Oregon comes to town to compete, luckily that's easter weekend.  However, the National competition is in Texas again this year, but its the weekend of Prom.  Jodyn is going to be so disappointed, she and her BFF wanted to plan a big prom weekend thing.  I probably should mention it to her so she knows...

Thanks for the info on the dual enrollment.  I hadn't even planned on bothering to see if it was deductible this year as we only spent $75 and books, so I figured it wasn't worth it.  But $700, wow!!  But I guess in the grand scheme of things to not pay regular tuition for it, still better...

We paid full price CC tuition for dual enrollment.  It was about $300/semester for the class, and the book was $30 or something.  But after seeing just how much "real" tuition is- we got a bargain :)  The school used to help out with that.  But with budget problems, the help the school system did with dual-enrollment was the first thing to go.  A few years ago you didn't even have to pay for AP tests- those were covered in full.  Not anymore.  I think Kristen took 4 of them, and they were $87 a piece.  :(

We'd have to wait until her spring break in March if we want her to do her taxes.  We are going to see her the end of Feb, but it's a one night thing.  We go up Friday night, see her concert- probably take her (and maybe this guy she's kind of seeing- I don't know) out for food.  Sat morning we've got to drive to JMU for Becca's All-State audition.  I'd love to do the Thursday night one- but then Becca misses a whole day of school.  And she's kind of freaking out over Algebra 2 right now.  SIGH.

Yes, the state used to help out with AP tests also, but that got cut last year, so I am shelling out $89 each for 3 tests this year, but I guess depending on how well she does it gets her out of some courses at out of state tuition costs, its a bargain...

Hope you get the job! 

We are also holding off on finalizing vacation plans   I just got wind that the group that organized the Barirer Island trip last year is doing a similar trip this year, but in North Carolina.  She also does a DC trip and one to Disney so I nee to be patient and see what group rates she offers.  It might be a better deal.
