Kate was 6 and in first grade at Conyer School in Visalia, Ca; Daniel was just 4 and in preschool at Children's Manor. I was in the first semester of the Dental Hygiene program at Fresno City College, commuting 4 days a week (90 miles round trip), going to class and clinic 6 hours a day and doing homework and makings straight "A's."
My kids' father lived in Missouri, so weekends off for visitation was not an option for me.
I look back and wonder how I did it, but we do what we must.
In so many ways those were sweet, sweet times with my children.
