College saving is a topic near and dear to my heart, as we have a 17-year-old who is currently undergoing the college exploration process. It seems like just yesterday that we dropped him off for his first day of kindergarten. He looked so small walking into that big school with his little turtle backpack on. My wife and I both had tears in our eyes. Now he is towering over us at 6 feet, 2 inches tall, constantly eating and never gaining weight.
