Blog disclosure: This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own.
The kids are happily settled into school this year. As we follow our daily routine of early alarm clocks, 3 sets of bus stop runs, healthy packed lunches, and evenings full of homework and ball games, I sit back and am in awe of how quickly the kids have grown and matured. The infant, toddler, and preschool years are no more. I now have a 3rd, 5th, 8th, and 10th grader. My oldest is going to his second homecoming this week and my youngest has joined chorus and the math club. While I could not be prouder of their accomplishments thus far, I still have a long way to go with the remaining high school and college years.
My children’s education is top priority. Thankfully, I have peace of mind financially because of Florida Prepaid. And, you can too!
