Welcome here. Big undertaking is right. I was in the same situation when I started (except I had four children.) Well worth the effort though. All the best.

george,

Same story for me, except I only have one daugher. Sometimes she can make it feel like I have 3 though. Anyway, if I could give you some advise it would be this..... (1)"stick with it". In the beginning I was really excited and went learned very quickly up to chapter 11. Only took me a matter of about 3 to 4 wks. Then life happened and I had to put it down for awhile. It was hard to pick it back up so I would have to restart. Then I would get back to where I left off, then life would get in the way again. So, no I'm taking it slowly and reviewing often. Now, I'm only doing about a chapter every couple of weeks if that. But, the point is that I'm sticking with it. It would have been real easy to put it down and never pick it back up. Secondly, do yourself a favor and get the audio lecture CDs and the workbook. Well worth the investment. Good luck to you.
