That sounds fantastic! Congratulations... let's hope you can help him finish the journey! IMHO, it's probably best if he gets his ticket prior to college. Freshman year can be overwhelming for many -- not just in terms of classes, but the new environment, new friends, new activities, etc. I just saw this (again) with a few of Little Miss Field Day's friends, the last two years. Studying for his license can get lost in the mix. Then again, some thrive and would have no problem handling it. Good luck to him. Does he know what field he's going to be studying at school?
