Plus, now he's worried about his scholarship, so he's excused for not being his usual jovial self tonight. I considered it a bonus that he started laughing by the end of our conversation. Every time I worry about that kid he makes a comeback, and I'm sure this will be no different. Four weeks and two days before he moves in down at College Park, unless something bad happens.
I'm deciding on a place to take him out for a graduation dinner, some place nice. He didn't even get a party thrown for him so I at least want to show him that I'm proud he's made it this far with some sort of ceremonial dinner.
