Yesterday my wife, Maryann, finished her undergrad schooling at Aurora University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in business! I am so proud of her for going back to school full time. It is one of the toughest things to do in your mid 40's. While attending school she also worked and kept our household under control, we all know it was beyond my abilities. 

 

So, today we went back to AU and started the sign up procedure for the MBA program! 
 

I cannot say how proud and thankful I am for my wife.

That is GREAT!  No it is not easy to go back to school after you have been out for a while. Then to work and care for a house as well, it does say a lot.  Congratulations to your wife and you.
