I hesitated to even post this here because - It's something he SHOULD do It's something he was court ordered to do It's something that shouldn't normally get a kudos (in my humble opinion) But since it's one of our kids and since he has never finished a thing (swear) in his life - I thought I'd just let you know there is hope, there is a hint of maturity in this and he's actually proud of himself for completing something for the first time in his life. I am sorry it had to be this. Would have rather it been a therapy group or any sport or art class.....but it is what it is. He said he hopes that his upcoming jury trial judge maybe sees that despite the fact that he could have just done nothing despite having to face "more" charges (we feel are bogus) he's done his community service and continues to do odd jobs to pay for probation - and is looking for a job.... I didn't even know this had happened = BECAUSE I thought when he went to the group home from hades last year? He had done all but 30 of 90 and they lost the paperwork - so the casworker (lazy) told the probation officer (sorta nice) "He can just do it all (90 hours) over again." (nice huh?") Instead of being typical argumentative Dude - he just did it - and now he's done. AND He's the only one out of all three boys that did commit the crime that has paid anything on his fines, done any community service, and paid any restitution. For that I'm thankful.....maybe the coconut did hit him in the head from the wise up tree.
