This year my son takes the bus home from school. I was nervous about him coming home to an empty house, but it has worked out well. His grades have gone up. Once he gets home, the rule is don’t leave the house, because we live off a busy road. Plus, he has homework which needs to get done before soccer. He calls me at work when he gets home, as he did on this day. He mentioned the helicopters flying over the house for the funeral on that busy road a quarter-mile away. I didn’t know he was going to pay his respects for the firefighter, but I know why he did. His half-brother had committed suicide after coming home from Iraq in August and we had just flown back from that service. It was still on his mind.
Thank you for clearing that up. Best Regards, Janey
