a friday FINALLY!!!


finally, after two months of strep throat, mononucleosis, and ice/snow/wind storms, katherine was able to go and take her driver's permit test!!!

(we arrived at the judicial center.)

(this is the old courthouse where i took my permit test... 24 years ago;)

(kat went right in and got started,)

(while i patiently waited outside the exam room.)

SHE PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS...
(however, the "thumbs up pic"
that should be HERE...
was VERY blurry:(
guess i was a little excited for her, hmmm;)

(she headed across the hall to have her photo taken for her permit)

(voila!!!)

YEA, KATHERINE!!!

(i love you!!!)

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

Good Job!!! Now on to the driving test, I'll bet she'll do great.

I threw up after I got my permit. I think the stress and the excitement all culminated in an unpleasant way. It's memorable though!

Whoo Hoo. Now she can drive you crazy...

Love the pictures and congrats. Now which one is you and which one is your daughter? Are you sure you are a mom. You look like sisters.

I am always amazed at how different things are over there with you in the US ~ over here you have to be 17 to learn to drive ~ you then sit a theory test and take lessons and then have an actual 'driving' test (I think that is correct ~ 17 was a LONG time ago and things have changed alot since I learnt to drive ha ha !!).
Well done to Kat!!
The photos are great ~ a fantastic reminder of another milestone reached!
take care ~love and hugs TabXXX

PS ~ great to see Kat looking well ~ I have missed her over on her blog xxxx

YAY Katherine! I am so happy she is feeling better too!

And now she is off on the roads--how are you doing Dani?!

How wonderful and scary at the same time.
I just plain do NOT have what it takes to teach my children how to drive.
Fortunatly Don does.
I guess he just doesn't have as strong of a self preservation instinct as I do.

Hannah said...

Yay!!! She gets to drive me around for a week!
;)

Yay for Kat!! Now the fun begins, NOT! Now the worries begin! I will have to say it's very helpful when they can drive themselves around though.

I love the last picture of the 2 gorgeous girls!

Lisa said...

Hurray! What fun, drive safe!

Hi there Dai

Way to go Katherine - CONGRATULATIONS.

Dani, I love that you documented this big event with photos of the whole process. I love it even more that Katherine got her permit from the same plae you did 24 years ago.
Us blogging mums can't go anywhere without our camera!!

Katherine, wishing you safe and happy motoring days.

Lots of love and hugs
Elise
