Ward and June receive a letter from Aunt Martha informing them that she is arriving for a visit in three days, but more importantly that she wants to send Beaver to Fallbrook for high school, one of the best prep schools in the country located in New England. If Beaver decides to go, he will be the fourth generation of Bronsons to attend the school. Ward and June encourage Beaver to accept Aunt Martha's offer as it will be a great opportunity for him, but they doubt if he will want to go. To their surprise, Beaver, after quickly focusing on all the interesting things available to do at Fallbrook compared to Mayfield High such as horseback riding and shooting, is eager to accept, and wants to let Aunt Martha know by telephone even before her arrival. After telling Aunt Martha the news, Beaver just as quickly changes his mind when he realizes everything he will be missing by leaving, such as his friends, family and everything he has known all his life. He has to figure out a way to tell... Written by Huggo
