While I am VERY proud of my son, I am VERY sad and even more scared for him. The BAD part?...He is just a Poole!! He has not even left home yet!!

Hi ZacherysMom,

 

  Our Grandson left for PI on June, 17, 2013 and I found this place.  It is the place to be, you instantly feel welcome and friends come out of the woodwork to help and hang out together.  We are all in the same boat so to speak.  Hope your fears are less now.  God Bless your son and your family
