My oldest son turned thirteen today. He has been awake since yesterday. He was too excited to sleep. And he logged onto the computer at 12:01 am in order to sign up for a myspace page. And spent the next several hours making it his. Then the search for friends started and he was so excited...he found his older brother on there (Same biological mother, different fathers). They moved to Idaho and we moved to Vancouver around the same time from the Seattle area and the boys lost touch.
Now, he is up at the teen area in the community center with his friends. Showing them the new long board and hanging out with them. He was nearly bouncing off the walls waiting for them to get out of school. I figure he will either come home with more myspace info for friends and return to his new page...or he will crash and we won't see him about for twelve to fourteen hours while he sleeps.
