Welcome to Destiny & Keegan’s playground / possible nightmare! I know you are excited about going to the school, but for now we must wait. We have some things to do, and our first priority is to make sure the kids are safe. They had to get out-of-town and lay low for a while. I hope you love the families that are fostering them for the summer as much as I do. 

While we wait, lets take a look at Milton Academy. When researching private schools I knew I wanted to go north, and Massachusetts was my pick. One of the main reasons I picked Milton was because it is also a boarding school. As you can see Milton Academy is a real school and from the look of it, a very good one. They also have a track and cross-country team which is great for Keegan. He must stretch his legs of course, and since Destiny needs a hobby The Milton Measure could end up coming in handy. We know from her 14th birthday she likes to take photos and if research needs to be done, what better way than working on the school’s newspaper. So…. Are you looking forward to February 2015 yet? I know I am! Below are some true facts about our fictional characters new school.
