17, a Driver’s Permit and a new set of wheels :)

Daniel made a big step into adulthood this past week. Last Tuesday he passed the test to obtain his driver’s permit. On Wednesday he turned 17 and on Saturday we picked up his “new to him” wheels. SO proud of him. The pick-up truck is a 1999 S10 with over 200,000 miles on it but that’s okay. He saved up the money to purchase it for cash. It belonged to friends of ours so has been... read more

Took him an hour to get it ready to drive this morning! Today the sun came out... read more
