Congrats to Connor! Great that he got accepted to all 5 schools - deciding between them is a good stress to have! Glad he made the decision although it would have been fun if he would have ended up in the school in this area; perhaps we could have met! Did you get the personal message I sent you? We vacationed in TN right after Labor Day this past year - it's beautiful down there!

I did get your message.
