In additional as you did not mentioned

- you may have child support which is not taxable.

- the child tax credit will be only until the child reach 17

- when your oldest enter into the collage - you will be able to claim some educational tax benefits.

Let me know if you own a home?

or may be you are attending the school by yourself?
