Happy New (School) Year!
And so the fun begins!

WOW! Just stopped to actually LOOK at what happened this last week: CSPA critiques flew out electronically and Palmetto is right up there on top! Holy Trinity is just intsy-weeksy points away from BEING THERE. Suncoast is still waiting (remember that waiting by the mailbox feeling? How different it is now! But not really … [...]
