I am so proud of my grandson

This is my grandson. The photo on the left is his first day of kindergarten. OMG, that was way more years back than I care to remember. The photo on the right is him this past week, on his first official day of Medical School. He has worked very hard from the day he entered high school to obtaining his undergraduate degree and then achieving a master's degree in biochemical engineering. Each mountain he has reached and conquered. When he got accepted to not one but two med schools last year, we were all shocked. The kid is no dummy and while he had some difficulty in deciding which school to follow through with, he has finally stepped upon the threshold of achieving his dreams. I don't think I could be more proud of him and what he has accomplished. I still remember him running around the house in his batman costume and cape. They do grow up fast. Edit: Photos are my daughters.

Yeah, I think so too, but I am a bit biased.

@sophie09 Well, I am his grandfather, of course, I am going to think he has done well. (My bias) In his case though, he has achieved more tham most people his age.. But would an outsider think differently?

And to think, his other goal was to play professional hockey in the NHL. (Unfortunately, he was too short.) Honestly, I think this was a better option for him.

@cperry2 So, it's not 'unfortunately', but 'fortunately' that he was too short!

@MALUSE Excellent point. Although for him, he thought it unfortunate, Penn State told him, "you have the skills and the eye to be a professional, but if we put you on the ice, these six-foot-six-inch players in college hockey will maim or worse, kill you." As a consolation, they offered him a full-ride scholarship to learn to be a coach. He would have been good at that too, but it was a pro-NHL player or nothing. I remember cringing when I heard he turned down that opportunity.

His dream is to be a neurosurgeon. I have no doubts he can make that happen. But time might change his mind, we shall see.
