Are you an NBFAA member with a high school senior?

It's the first day of school in my town here on the coast of Maine. I love the first day of school! Kids getting on the bus, Canadian geese flying overhead, perfect sweater-and-shorts weather outside. My oldest starts high school today and the only thing that gives me a little pause on a day like today is the thought of her going off to college in four short years ... and, even more bittersweet, the thought of paying for it. So on that note, lookee what Tri-Ed is offering.
