The first two were basically older to the point they were through UC before the 2nd two began. Reducing expenses from 4 to 2 does make quite a difference.

This past Christmas we had 3 of the 4 back home, the only absentia being a daughter and her husband stationed with the Army in Hawaii.
As we sat around Christmas Night till the wee hours, the ones here remarked Mom, Dad how did you achieve this? Only the oldest are college age, but they are seeing the difference.
