In some ways, Julie Wilson says she and her daughter grew up together. Wilson, 39, was only 17 when she and her husband, Brian, had Morgan, now 22.

And now mother and daughter are going to college together.

Julie is in her first semester at BGSU Firelands, studying early childhood education while Morgan Baker works toward her degree in the same field. Morgan expects to finish with her bachelor's degree after three more semesters, but in the meantime, she and her mother are going to school together.

Pick up Sunday's Register to see why each chose to enter the same field.

My wife and daughter did the same thing.

My wife worked a full time job and went to Firelands for fourteen years.

My wife was one of the first people to get a four year degree at Firelands.

I'm not sure if it still is, but it was called "Rye Beach High" in those days.

: - ))

I took COBOL at Firelands when I was 55.

You go Julie, it can be done.

Best to you AND your daughter!
