My son Bob just called to tell me he’s finished with Law School! He took his final final today, and the academic weight is off him (and he sounds more energized than he has in months).
He had an abortive start at law school, which I mention only to praise him for his perseverance and hard work, and that stubborn, quiet ambition of his.
Now to study for the Bar exam (he’s in Florida, and will take it there), in late July, then off to work. Setting him apart from most of his new-grad peers, he has an actual job offer, which is terrific! (I half-jokingly asked once if he was going to need to move back into the basement, and he quipped ‘Then I’d literally be in-house Counsel”, which was clever).
Good for you, Bob, your Mom and I are terrifically proud of you.
