It is not over yet. You are going to be worrying until you see the grave. Kids have a way of doing that without them even realizing it. Just wait until your daughter starts to date. I don't know who I will feel more sorry for. You or her. Glad he got into the school. Where in New England is the school located?

Yay! Glad it worked out even though I missed the post in time to send out my prayers. Thank goodness for the rest of the DC'ers

That's great. He will have access to Yale libraries. Charlie, Yale has one of the last Guttenburg Bibles. Have your son try to see it. It was the first book he printed when he invented the movable press. Sounds like you have one heck of a great kid. I am sure he will make you one proud Papa.

I doubt grave is even close. But there will be days when you wish it were around the corner. A child will make you have the strongest urge to kill one moment and the urge to hug and love the next.

It is not easy for a child to go into a room alone and try to convince a total adult stranger why he should accept him into the school. He must have done a heck of a job in that interview. Good luck to you and your family.
