Taking Control Over Money has a great post about 529s. I have managed to dig out the file with the kids applications in them, but that is as far as I have gotten for right now.
My parents set up funds for the kids when they were born & I guess my Dad is rearranging ds's, so we are going to stick some of his money in that as well ($100 out of his savings account). SO go us! Finally getting something done, at least they are only 3 & 7 & not 14 & 18!!!
