A couple of days ago I had this comment:
"A while back, Philip, you posted a photo of Lachlan on the way to his first day of school. If I'm not mistaken you promised to give us a report on how it went for him. But nothing since! How is it going on Ocracoke for the younguns as they enter school?"
Every time I ask Lachlan how school is going he says "Great!" We take that as a good sign.
However he can still be impish. Several days ago he found the "contacts" list in his mama's cell phone and called a friend to invite him to a party. The friend's mama answered (it was her cell number after all). When she asked to speak with Amy to verify the details about this "party" Lachlan said that probably wasn't a very good idea. You've got to give it to him for cleverness!
