Bad news/Good news. He's been skipping school and I was worried that he was smoking pot. But his demeanor has been decent ... he had dinner with us last night, and brought his govn't book to the table as I asked, to go over it with us. So I tracked him down this a.m. (which included getting up at 6 to stand out in the rain to watch the bus arrive, but I had to stay behind a bush so I wasn't 100% certain he got on). An hr later, I checked online, and he was marked absent. Arrgh! He is at D's, with the baby. He says the baby is sick and D needs help. (Her mom went back to work.) Not sure if the baby is truly sick or if he just wants to be there and skip school. But at least he's not high or dealing. He's just doing what he wants to do, which is what he's always done.
