Could You Spare a Mother a Dime?

Having two children in college at the same time is going to mean a little fancy, financial footwork on the behalf of The Colonel and I.

Yam and Spud are doing their part in helping us with this college, cash crunch.

Yam will be a Resident Assistant (R.A.) for her dorm next year. Because she has been chosen for this position, she will save The Colonel and I the cost of her housing for this upcoming year at college. She is also still a Florida Bright Futures, Florida Academic Scholar, scholarship winner which saves us costs on part of her tuition.

Spud has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA).

We're still waiting to see if he qualifies for a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship (we don't have his final grades yet) so that some of his tuition will be covered as well. Spud plans on trying to become an R.A. eventually too, as well as apply for a naval scholarship later on in his college career.

The Colonel and I have been planning and saving for college for Yam and Spud since before there was a Yam and Spud, but even with that in mind, every bit helps.

Thanks Yam and Spud for doing your part and helping Dad and I financially, in the quest for your college diplomas.
