Just a Note
Today I took Peter for his drivers test for his drivers license. Our sixth and youngest child who is bigger than me and not much of a child anymore but a man is now licensed to drive. Six times to the DMV, six times of driving with kids without a brake on our side of the car. We have survived!!! I am so thankful. I have jokingly said if I had known I was going to have to teach them to drive our oldest would have been an only child.
It worked out though, I drove with the oldest three and my husband drove with the youngest three. I think the hardest thing is sitting on the bench waiting for them to return and find out if they passed the test. Waiting is always the hardest for me.
So one hurdle down today. Next will be getting Peter ready to take his tests for college and then Emilie's Wedding and then Peter graduating for high school. I keep thinking of how doors close and doors open. How in order to grow, we must experience change. Like me not being a big fan of change but if I can experience the life changing experience of watching my poor husband start over with 22 year olds fresh out of college, then I can close my lesson plan books, box up my records and walk through that door that is opening day by day and even though I want to look back, I won't, I will keep my eyes forward, reaching for those stars that are right now just out of my reach.
Have a wonderful Thursday,
