Same here... put my daughter through 5 years of college... married now and glad she is off my wallet sort of speak...

My son graduates this Spring and has already received the letter indicating he graduates and this May we attend his graduation from college... though he now goes to graduate school for his higher education which we will have to fund... scholarships have helped him much for the finances but when we tally the costs to send both of them to college we could have bought a brand new Benetau sailboat... but the benefit is seeing them graduate and know you have done the job as a parent to see them off to their own careers and lives... now comes the fun part of funding our cruising lives....
