When we settled in and ordered, he went to the washroom. The restaurant manager appeared at our table and asked for Jackson. We told him where he was, and the manager said he had a coupon for Jackson because he was so impressed that a young person would share his birthday with an elderly woman and actually go over and talk to her.
We were so impressed that a restaurant manager would appreciate our "boy's" gesture! Jackson is the kind of kid who will go over to a person and just relate.
We had a glitch in late January when he was suspended for a week, which made his travel to Hilton Head with us in February impossible. It also curtailed his dad's holiday. Since then, he has looked at his behaviour and taken a lot of guidance from parents and grands to heart. He has obviously done the right thing.
We hope he will continue on and become the young man we know he can be.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TOAD!
