The neighborhood we live in is made up of the best, most creative, fun women on the planet! Of course, with 4 kids I rarely get to just hang out and chat with them. It's usually just a text or a wave during the mad dash of car pool. Today the kids were invited to driving school at the Thompson's house. They have a new go cart, and every kid here wants to drive it, so they were very excited. All I've heard since yesterday is, "Tell us when it's 3 p.m. on Saturday because we have to go to driving school at Mrs. Sandy's house." Jackson and Mia rode their bikes over at 3 sharp to get started. Parker is too young to drive, but he definitely wanted to watch, so we got Everett up from his nap and headed over a few minutes later. This was a very professional school of driving. First they had to take their written test, of course. Once they passed that, they had their turn behind the wheel. We got there just in time to see Mia pulling in the driveway, and Jackson took his turn next. I thought Parker would at least ask for a ride, but he was just glad to be there with all the other boys. After they had their test run, they got a certificate saying they had completed the course and their very own driver's license! They had a great time, and I'm sure the first thing they say in the morning will be, "Can we go drive the go cart?"
One brave woman riding with all the student drivers.
