Rookie Driver

IMG_2976

Today was a big day for Zoe. We got up bright and early and headed to the MVA so that she could take the Learners Permit test. She was a bit nervous, but she passed with flying colors! She was so tickled that she was able to pass the test after only taking it once. (She read somewhere that 51% of the people who take that test fail the first time, so she was freaking out a little!)

Once we got home I took her out for her first little drive around our neighborhood, and she did really well. There were a few slight cases of whiplash, but once she learned how touchy the brakes are on Tony’s car, she got better. She also hit a few curbs and kept turning on the windshield wipers when she’d panic a little, but all in all she was pretty successful. I’m just glad that there are so many driving hours required before she’ll actually get her license because she’s going to need them!

Hi. That's such an important mile-stone to teens. Congrats to her for being on the road to a real driver's license. Hang tight mom...it gets better.

Time for the Tooth Fairy

So, Harper FINALLY lost his first tooth. It seems that he's a bit later than most kids but I wasn't worried since I've never met...
