{solsc} 7/31 #sol17 Happiness

While he's great at making other people laugh, there's always a sober undercurrent in him when you talk with him.  Not depression or sadness, really, but he's not a happy kid all the time.

But lately, you see, there's this girl.

"Mrs. Day, so L and me, I guess we're kind of a thing."

"You are?"

"Yea, it makes me pretty happy."

"Well, I have been noticing you've been together quite a bit. I wondered about it at Districts."

"We weren't a thing then. This has only been a couple of days."

"Well, you might not have known, but I could see something going on."

"Yea."

He practices his piece with me. Then we talk about prom and their group.

"Yea. I'm pretty happy."

And then she walked into the room. Her grin was as big as his. I'd say she's pretty happy too.

  4. You have such a good rapport with your kids and seem to be able to read their every mood. They are lucky to have you to share their joys and difficulties with.
