Today is our oldest son’s 18th birthday. He wants to spend the afternoon and evening with his friends. I’m so glad he has friends to spend it with. They want to go hang out at the mall, then go to a fund raiser for their Robotics club, that he organized. He’s the treasurer of the club, and this is his senior year in public high school. He’s getting ready to graduate in June. We’re looking forward to another celebration for him, then sending him off to college. He seems to be doing well. He tells me he’s doing fine. He hates it when I worry about him. He wants to be done with his IEP and move on. I’m concerned about weather his EF challenges will make it difficult for him to transition to dorm life and more independence. I want him to become more independent and I’m looking forward to helping him with the transition to college, but I want him to be prepared to be successful. And I’m just not convinced, yet. Anyway, for today, and tomorrow, and the next week, we’re celebrating!  Yea!!
