In a much smaller way, I was the same way when my boys were taking their driving test and CCW tests. It actually made me nervous with a bit of a queasy stomach. Much partying afterwards. Viel Erfolg "G"!
Danke Großer Maik! (There ARE people called Maik (pronounced Mike) in Germany! Großer Maik can be your German alterego. :D) Yes, much partying afterwards sounds about right! G did very well, and we went out for celebratory lunch with his parents and then beer with friends afterwards! :)
