Hello and Welcome, Heather! We are delighted to have you with us. Congratulation on being accepted to school.
Heather,, all i can say is pre-plan. Know when, how, and where you will study before you get started. Get everything you will need organized and in one place so you wont have to move things off the dining room table before people can eat. Getting all that taken care of first with kids around the house gives you time to talk and reinforce it with the kids before it starts happening. Depending on their ages, plan in frequent quick breaks to check in with the kids during your study time.
There will be parts of the program that will be more difficult than others but with good planning and not having your study time interrupted until you choose to break it will make it much easier.
Good Luck, you'll do great.
