Who says your too old to learn

Well I started the process of going back to school today. I stoped in to the local tech college and looked into the early childhood development/special education/speech language associate programs. They are even offering a few courses online starting in January, how perfect is that, I can get my feet wet in the academic world from the comfort of my own home in my pj's, complete with my daily fix of caffeine....I'm excited! I'm also scared, I haven't been in school in over 15 years (I had gotten my associates in business right after HS, went back in the late 80's early 90's part time nigts to work on my bachelors but never completed the fourth year. I think I ended up 21 credits shy).
The cost for the two classes will be $500 plus books, don't know where I'll come up with it....but somehow I will for this is something I really want to make happen. The admissions director actually had a great idea, since I have 60 credits, I already qualify to be an ed tech II in our state, so once I start the education classes I should be able to apply to schools before completing my first round of courses, it seems most schools are very happy to pay for your continuing education....so I might be able to have my degree paid for.
It certainly was worth the trip.....even though I had to park far away from the admissions office and walk in the pouring rain.....I'm that determined!
