Just made the last tuition payment for daughter #2! It feels terrific.
She will graduate in May with a degree in Early Childhood Education. Our third and (last daughter) has two more years. That makes 10 years of tuition paid and 2 to go. I made a deal with my girls that our contribution for grad school will be limited to room and board in my house.

...with no reasonable expectation for ER, I'm just here auditing the AP class.Retired 8/1/15.

Congrats, Jazz.

Two weeks ago, I made my last payment for DD#1. It felt great, as did the more recent news that she got a low-level j*b in her desired field. It's a clerical job that requires few college-level skills, but she will be exposed to the medical field she wants to study at the next level. Bonus: it will pay enough to take her off the Bank of Dad and allow her to put away some money for grad school starting in another year.

Now it's time for me to bump up the contributions for DD#2's fund. She starts college in just three years.
