Driver's License Day

October 21, 2010 a day that will go down in infamy, ok maybe not that exciting, but today my 16 year old son was granted the right by the State of Illinois to drive a car and hit the road. Right, wrong or indifferent my nine months of driving with him is over. My second 9 month stint with him! This one so far is much less painful! Please watch out if you see him coming down the road. I would like to officially change the driving age in Illinois to 17. I wonder if other parents would agree with me. Good luck Chase, be safe and no texting!!!!

So today was a great fall day and I wish I could duplicate it tomorrow instead of going to work :(

Shelby spent time with Kathleen which I think they both needed. Its hard to keep a friend when you go to different schools.

Chase lost his girlfriend tonight. He says as soon as they go out for a month that's it! Her loss. No problem he will have his license is 4 days and all will be well in his world.

I am still attempting to complete my first pair of knitted socks. Yes I know they sell them in the store, but its a challenge now and I plan to conquer........

Driving Ms. Daisy

Dear Chase:

Next Thursday October 21, 2010, you will have had your permit for 9 months, and its time for you to get your driver's license. I have mixed feelings about this, but its a rite of passage for every kid. I can only hope you keep in mind everything I taught you and that those 50 hours we drove together were not lost on you. God knows I have the extra gray hairs for all the 50 hours I drove with you. Please be safe and be respectful of other drivers and I will say a little prayer every time you drive away from me.
