Hiddy Ho Fosters! It's your long lost crew from Columbus, GA. Just got back from our wonderful vacation in Hawaii. A quick update on the clan, Art is still working as a range instructor until this summer when he will leave for Drill SGT School. There he will train for nine weeks. I've just started back at my new job at Aflac. I'm now officially an insurance agent. Anyone need a policy?...LOL Little Art is still exceling in school. Since we kept him out of school one extra day after spring break we disrupted his perfect attendance. :-( Little Marlee is doing great! She is now about 18 lbs and 27 inches long. She will be tall just like her daddy. And as you can see from the picture we've gotten her ear's pierced. She really enjoyed the trip to Hawaii and was very spoiled by all just like her brother. My older sister now calls her "Sunshine" because she is always smiling. My Grandfather calls her "Angel" because he said she's as sweet as one. And my mom calls her "Mrs. Aloha" because she is always happy. Trust me she answers to all. I just call her my "Sweet Pea" which is the nickname that her daddy gaver her. We miss everyone very much and are going to try and make a trip out to WI this summer. Look forward to seeing you all soon. Huges and Kisses for all!!!

They also have about 20 baby chick that Bobby brought home from school (FFA) that are soooooo cute. And the eggs from them will be fabulous to eat. Not like the ones you have to buy in the store! I can't wait for them to get the turkeys so we can see them. Mark also got to bring out his four wheelers and the Boggs boys and he went for a ride around their property. It was a lot of fun. Thank you Boggs family for letting us come out.
Then the "fun" started. We played a game that is called "stuck in the mud". It is kind of like freeze tag with kick paddles. You have to run, and run, and RUN so you don't get out. When it is your turn you have to run, and run, and RUN to try and get everyone out. (I like playing with my two-year-olds much more. I can keep up with them for now:-) I did have fun and hope that they will have another one someday.

This is the article I told you about that the lady from the school did on people going to college in tough economic times. She interviewed me and this article was also put into the Dells paper. Thought that maybe you would like to put it on the blog. Love- Eva---

COLLEGE OFFERS OPTIONS IN TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES
An economic recession strikes fear in many people.
For some, that means staying put and hoping the tough times will pass.
But for Eva Foster, a former over-the-road truck driver who returned to school to get her degree, it meant revving up the engine.
Foster is starting her degree in education at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County after spending 11 years as a truck driver.
“I definitely will have a more stable future,” she said. “It’s a sacrifice… (and) it’s an investment. But knowledge is something you can never go wrong with. It’s only going to help make you a better person.”
With the job market slumping, many people are feeling squeezed by the deepening economic recession.
The UW Colleges campuses, like UW-Baraboo/Sauk County, are the most affordable entry point in the UW System for students of all ages looking for job security or a new career, said Student Services Assistant Director Jan Gerlach.
Tuition and fees at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County are $4,640 for 2008-09, Gerlach said. This is $2,924 less than at UW-Madison, $2,165 less than UW-Milwaukee and $1,407 less than the average at the other four-year UW campuses.
But earning a degree also reaps long-term dividends.. According to a study by the U.S. Census Bureau titled “The Big Payoff,” an associate’s degree like those available at UW-B/SC can net an individual up to $200,000 in additional earnings over the course of a lifetime.
If students then complete a UW-B/SC collaborative bachelor’s program or transfer their UW-B/SC credits to a four-year institution, a four-year degree can earn them up to $500,000 over their lifetime, depending on the major.
It’s a long-term investment in your future that doesn’t depreciate, Dean Tom Pleger said.
“We represent a tremendous value in higher education,” Pleger said. “With small class sizes and outstanding UW professors, UW-Baraboo/Sauk County offers the equivalent of a private liberal arts college experience at affordable public tuition rates.”
UW-Baraboo/Sauk County is part of the UW Colleges, the 13 freshman/sophomore campuses of the UW. Tuition at the Colleges has been frozen since 2006, and Chancellor David Wilson said he plans to request that the Board of Regents keep tuition at the current rate for the 2009-10 academic year.
“Our goal is make our campuses even more affordable,” Wilson said. “While the current economic climate presents challenges, I am still hopeful that I can present a convincing argument to the Board to keep our campuses moving forward with affordable tuition.”
UW-Baraboo/Sauk County is still accepting applications for the spring semester and for fall 2009. Contact the Student Services Office at (608) 355-5230 for more information about admission and financial aid.
