Bones has been saying he's not nervous about whether he got into the vocal department at the local high school.

Not nervous at all.

Yet he's been checking the mailbox every day, which he never does.

Today he ran out and came in with a large white envelope that said, Congratulations! and has postage with the Celebration USPS stamp.

The kid is in.

Now let us pray... he can stay there.

Yippee!!! That's awesome news! We got a letter too: Ben is in the engineering program at JHS, which offiically begins the end of his mother being able to help him with homework. Congrats to Bones. And his relieved parents.

TN- Constance Fry... Constance Fry....

Leigh- holy crap! He got in the Engineering magnet?! That's a frickin' hard program to get into. That's fantastic!

Bones made a good decision today. He said, "I have to take two years of a language. I'm going to take French..." That's the only language I can help him with. All the others... he's on his own.

This is wonderful. I can see so many ways that having him that school will expand his horizons and (maybe) relieve some of your concerns.

He will still be Bones though and that will make it interesting. I think that the new opportunities (and peer pressure) will keep him engaged at that school.
