So I promised my next post would show Julian's response, though I didn't promise when.
When his Mom told him that he would be going with me, he said "Who all is going?" She told him it was just he and I. "Just me and Ange? Why am I the only one who gets to go?" Then came a pause as he considered his own question..."Cause I'm special huh." Yes Julian, cause you're special. Then he asked his Mom every question about DC he could come up with. She finally had to tell him "Julian, it's a long way away. Could you please stop talking about it for now?"
