Thanks, Don. I am very proud, not only of his academic achievments, but his social consciousness as well. He just spent two years in Sitka, Alaska in Americorps service working with disadvantaged kids in a middle school there. He also spent a very difficult three weeks in the Alaskan wilderness for an environmental project. He loves the outdoors (a NYC kid) , and just hiked the famous and treacherous 35-mile Chilkoot Trail - solo, an undertaking that had his parents anxious as he was off the grid for four days, amidst danger of avalanche, unpredictable weather - and grizzly bears! This was a historic trek for prospectors in the Klondike gold rush. This guy documented it:

I watched the link with interest.  Solo is a little risky unless there are others about, and that seems the case here.

Our older kids do what they want for the most part, and we just become spectators....fun.
