In all the wedding planning excitement, I haven't really thought about it much, but in a week or so, I'll have 3 college students in my life!

Veterans resources aside, why Fl? I know the GI Bill will pay a stipend, but rent and food is much higher in Fl--we JUST came back from Orlando, so I can attest to that. He'd save a bundle if he stayed home and went to school locally.

The weather is a heck of a lot better in Fla.?

Sometimes it is better to go away for school if the resources and support offered at that school is better than those offered at the local school. It may cost more but the additional costs are worth it. It sounds like that is the case with J.

Well, musiclover does have a point - Florida is a heck of a lot more comfortable in January than Wisconsin is! LOL

We've been having great weather (for December in Wisconsin anyway) too, but still not quite as good as Florida. Trust me, a week in Florida next year at this time has definitely crossed my mind!

And florida residents get some kind of deal on passes to Disney World.

Best of luck to J in FL! If he stays focused on his goal he should do fine.

Ikwym about worrying even when he's 27: With any new avenue our children explore it seems we can't help thinking of what might go wrong, while they see only the positive side.

Well it sounds like he has his head screwed on straight and he knows what he wants. Some people live all their lives never knowing what they want and never happy. As for being so far away, there are things called seat sales that you can fly down to visit for cheap. Take advantage of them, your boy is on his way to wonderful things! :-)

It sounds as if he has thought this out and with buddies down there already, and the veteran's resources there, things should go well. Hopefully he will text you if not call.

Good luck to him!
