I am a husband and father of 3 beautiful girls.  After over 20 years pursuing various career paths, I have recently decided to return to school and finish earning the degree I began so many years ago.  College life coupled with a family and other adult obligations has proven to be an experience that would have been damn-near impossible to prepare for.  So here I am, travelling the road of a middle-aged family man and college student.  I can only hope I don’t get lost along the way or, worse, trip and fall.

I’ve been accused of being a little weird at times (by my family), I call it being whimsical.  Anyone with children will tell you that they are not as sane as they were before having children.  I have three so… do the math.  That being said…  (think Rodgers and Hammerstein)
