Angel #4, my baby, turned 16 on Monday. Today, after 2 1/2 hours in the DMV, she received her driver's license. That's it for me. No more teaching kids how to drive. No more temporary license restrictions. No more having to go everywhere with my kid so they can get more driving practice. Done. Over. She did really well on the behind the wheel test as well, only losing one point out of a possible max of 25, and she feels he just docked her the point so she wouldn't get a perfect score, because when she told the girl in line next to her why she got a point off, that girl said she never even looked in her mirrors while #4 was told she was supposed to check surrounding traffic in her mirrors every 6-8 seconds. Sounds a little nit-picky to me, but who cares? She got her license!! She's already made plans for the weekend. I may never see my car again, but at least I don't have to haul her to the mall anymore.
In other wonderful news, the carpet was laid in our living room and new family room yesterday. The guy finished around 5pm and as soon as #4, WE's girlfriend & I got home from belly dancing class, we moved the furniture back in the rooms and it looks great and feels so roomy after being crammed in the dining room for the last 3 months.
Yesterday was the last belly dance class. I'd like to say we all improved drastically over the course of 6 weeks....but I can't, because we all still looked as uncoordinated the 6th week as we did the 1st, though Angel #4 caught on pretty well and could do the moves much better than the rest of us. Next adventure? Yoga
