Before I get in to today’s post, we hosted Potty Training Boot Camp this weekend it was EX.HAU.STING. I’ll be blogging about this misadventure soon.
About a year ago, while enjoying Caroline’s Easter party at the Goddard School, I met Elizabeth Prom, Jackson’s mom. I actually didn’t meet her, but I gave her a stank eye because she was that mom with the awesome camera who made treats for the kids–overachiever–while I was lucky I showed up. Anyway, a few birthday parties and a month or so later, I planned a play date so that I could get to know this overachieving mama. It turns out, she’s a lot like me–a career woman who juggles a travel schedule and her family on a weekly basis. Well, over the past year, our school-based friendship has blossomed to a real friendship and the Prom Family has become an integral part of our life here in Austin.
A few months ago Matt and I were over at the Prom’s house just chatting about college costs and retirement…you know, all that fun chat that happens when a bunch of parents are in a room together, when I learned that Garrett (Jackson’s dad) owns and operates a financial planning business, Prominent Financial Planning (get it? PROMinent). And then, a couple of days ago I learned that Goddard School (where we send sweet Caroline) will be hosting a FREE event with Prominent that I thought was worth sharing with you all.
When: Wednesday, March 20 from 6:30 to 7:00 PM.
Where: Goddard School in Cedar Park
The presentation will cover:
- What is a 529 College Savings Plan?
- How does it work?
- Why should I consider funding an account like this for my children?
