I was walking completely unaware of my surroundings until the shades of this trees hit my feet.
What a beauty.
It was sitting alone, in between buildings in a parking lot on a hill with its roots exposed. I don't know why but it reminded me of W.
He went to his Junior Prom and had a great time with date and his friends. Some may say, prom is just a prom, but for me it was more than just a prom. It was something I didn't expect to happen and it was a success.
He signed up to go to Spain next year with his Spanish class.
He came home with all the details of the 11 trip to Spain (Madrid & Barcelona) and stop to Italy (possibly Milan or Sorento or Isle of Capri). He also came with how he will earn part of the money to go to the trip.
My permission for this trip has turned on a switch. I didn't have to remind him to do anything today. He told me everything I wanted to ask, without my asking a single question. It feels like he has grown & matured years in the last few days.
He also informed me he is getting a chance meet the Dalai Lama next month with his AP History class. That's what I call branching out.
I don't know how long this will last, but I decided to enjoy seeing the changes.
