Like I said the other day with Logan, it was like pulling teeth to get Senior pictures of the boys. They're about as lackadaisical as it gets when it comes to getting things together for graduation. I had to let them know that a cap and gown was necessary (not an option!) They darn near didn't get the order forms for those turned in on time. They have other things to concern themselves with.
Adam is one of the hardest-working guys I know. He volunteers regularly at church, has worked for Pepsi for a year and a half, and was one of my biggest supporters when my mom lived with us. He gave up two of his teenage years to take care of her needs. Not because he had to, but because he wanted to.
I thought for sure with Adam's junior high record that he'd be hell in high school. He has had a couple of moments (like the time he got suspended for two days last month) but he's grown and matured so much. Adam is one of the most laid-back and chill people you'll ever meet. But if you make him mad, he has no problem voicing his opinion.
He's ready to be out and away from school. I'm almost sure Adam will not be attending college. He's complacent with being in the work force. And if that's the path he chooses, I'm quite all right with that.
After listening to us plead till their ears bled, the boys finally agreed to a brotherly hug. This is as good as it got.
