We did the Florida pre-paid for both kids (5 and 2) so it was done and out of the way and have full peace of mind as said earlier. First kid was paid in full before "differential". Second kid was one year too late and we had to pay $19k in differential for the same plan as our oldest - that HURT!

Decided I would rather deal with it now while I am working rather than when the kids get to college and we are trying to retire (I will be 60+ when they graduate high school).

We continue to fund our retirements to the max. and don't have to feel guilty about college vs. retirement savings. Remember, many ways to get through college, only one chance at retirement - unless you keep working or win the lottery!
