Al's son Nick will soon be heading to college

"Still hard to believe my young man is about to graduate high school and head off to college. Trying to savor these days now," he captioned the latest snap which saw the father-and-son duo on the dock of a lake.

The news is made even more special since Nick, who is the youngest of Al's three children, is "somewhere on the (autism) spectrum and maybe obsessive-compulsive," the TV star previously told Guideposts magazine.

At the time Al added: "But those labels can be frustrating; they don't begin to describe who Nick really is."
