Well said, Kathleen! The major textbook in the Horticulture class I am now taking at the J.C. is the text for the Master Gardner's course that I hope to be accepted in next year. Here in CA the MG program is almost free (except for the text and forty hours of indentured service). Since KsMama can't take the M.G. program 'till next year anyway, she might as well be taking something that will make her more hireable, so she can begin that apprenticeship. Then she can get some dirt under those fingernails and money in the pocket ASAP! That said, I still think it important that she have something that establishes that she has completed a program that touches all of the bases in an organized manner.
I remember how it was, going to college with four kids at home. It was no picnic, but it was worth it.

Yes. My mother went to college with five children at home, and she was raising us alone! Used to lock herself into the bathroom (the ONLY bathroom) so she could have some peace and quiet to study!
