Summer is drawing to an end in our part of the world. The kids go back to school on Wednesday. Don't ask me how sad I'm going to be that first week...My baby is going to be a senior this year. A good portion of my summer has been devoted to helping her find her top three college choices. Thankfully we found the third one two weeks ago. (Wipes brow)
