Kudos to Bob

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.


  1. Congratulation!

    As are Mr. and Mrs. Fred! You’ve picked a challenging field, and we know you’ll do well.

  3. Well, aside from the kidding over “Joining the Dark Side”, I trust all will be well for him in his Bar Prep. The BARBRI course is excellent, and he will see that it is the thinking and writing that will pay off. Good Luck!!!

    That is AWESOME news!

  5. Congratulations to you both. The Florida Bar is known as being one of the two or three most difficult in the country thanks to the elder/estate planning law components, so when he passes that it will be an even more impressive accomplishment.

  6. Congrats!

  7. Congratulations to Bobby! That’s fantastic news. Glad you’re not going to have to support him post grad like most of his peers’ parents will. So, congrats to you too.

    That is a wonderful achievement! He’s always been a neat kid. It should only follow that he’s doing well in adulthood. Congratulations to Bob and ALL his loved ones!
