BREAKING NEWS: It’s Official!

Got the call yesterday!

After winning the highest possible amount offered in their Fine Arts (Graphic Design) Scholarship program*, the older boy WILL be an incoming freshman at the college that smells like chocolate this fall!

We’re psyched!

*Many, MANY thanks to Aunt Julesie for helping him put together his kick-a$$ portfolio!
