Today is a big day in our household.
Today begins the end of being the chauffeur of our children,
I mean our first kid has gotten his license.
We went to the DMV for an appointment that we made a month ago only to have it start sprinkling as soon as we arrived. We got all of the paperwork done but we had to make a return appointment to come back for the driving test because the roads were getting wet. Not much, but enough to cancel our testing plans. So we made a new appointment - three weeks for the next appointment.
On the way home we stopped at the green grocer. When we came out about 20 minutes later the sun had come out and dried up the roads. We weren't far from the DMV so we took a chance and went back. So glad we did. Ben got his road test and passed with flying colors. Whew!
I took some pics of Ben when we got home to mark the occasion. It was a happy coincidence that he was standing in front of the picture that Erin Cobb took of my kids 2 years ago.
Man, how times have changed.
In fact, look at the height and weight on Ben's permit and license.
In two years the kid has grown almost a foot but has only gained 30 pounds.
He is a lean, mean driving machine.
Congrats kid, I am proud of you.
Now be careful out there.
