John, that is a real cute pup!! I saw the picture before I read your story. I imediately thought English Setter, but man that is a lot of blue for the ears. And the head didn't look quite right. Then reading it was an ES/GSP mix, it made perfect sense.
But be careful, this is going to be one smart dog! GSP's are very smart hunters, and the English Setter will be a fun loving companion/hunter. It's instincts will be to put it's nose down and GO! Teach your son to be very careful with open doors and gates. These hunters tend to get absorbed in the hunt, and forget where they came from. I think your son, and you, will have a great companion for many years to come! Jim.
