Caroline Has Her Learner’s Permit

Caroline has had her learner’s permit for several months but she hasn’t been very excited to go out driving and get her required 40 hours of road time in. She certainly doesn’t seem as excited to drive as I remember myself being. She’s been to the driving range a few times for Drivers Ed and has gone on the road once with her instructor. I’ve also taken her around the neighborhood a few times, but she hasn’t felt very confident. Today we decided to do some real driving. We went on the Mountain View Corridor, where the speed limit is as high as 65. She did fine and it seemed to increase her confidence quite a bit.

Busy Saturday

Went on a bike ride with Nancy

Mowed the lawn (well, Sam mowed it and I edged it)

Weeded the garden and the backyard

Roto-tilled the garden

Cleaned out the fountain/stream in the back yard

Caught this guy:


Sorry you had to die, Mr. Gopher, but I can’t have you destroying my yard.
