...and I hear Devon's cell phone go off indicating he has a text message. My first thought was that Devon forgot his cell phone, which is odd because he never forgets it. Before that thought even finished, I realized, "Oh carp. He's home." Let's see...he made it to school Monday and Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday he went in around 1pm. He exploded on me last week. He's been tired, sleeping a lot and having headaches. Yep, you can tell he's going to his dad's. But, he's 17. That's no excuse. You have to face life sometime. He already had diversion through Juvenile Court last year for missing so much school (actually late so much, but anything over 30 minutes late is 1/2 day absence). He had to do 30 hours community service and pay court costs. Seems like it really taught him, huh. I didn't even consider that he was home. His door is always closed and his car was gone. That's because his friend who has been here for 2 weeks drove it to school so he could get there. He's managed to make it all week.
