Last Boast...I Promise

Cassie passed the driving part of her license test.

SHE NOW HAS HER LICENSE!

She's a great driver. At this very moment she and Caroline are out on their very first trip without supervision. To the grocery store. Hey, works for me!

It was so fun being one of the first to congratulate Cassie. Great accomplishment that hopefully makes life a bit easier for mom!

Yes, so far my son still finds friends to drive him, even in our car (because the friend sold his). But they're paying for gas, and that works for me. :o)

What a joy to know there are a few mom's left who take pride in their teen's accomplishments. You brag all you want!!! Love, Aunt Joyce

Was great to see you if only for a few moments, Deanna. Thanks for the book loan! I'll start on one tonight.

AJ - Thanks for making me feel just swell today with this comment.

Liz - Thanks! XOX to you, too.

You do realize that you WILL be breaking that promise, don't you? ;)

Hey, I need some stuff at the grocery!

Many congrats on the license and on your mom's improving health.

About the chard on my site---it is GREAT steamed with a little butter (oh yes) and salt.

Way to go, Cassie! She and Caroline will be a lot like we were, Cherie! Remember how much fun we had going to Roseburg and to school together? Great times!

Cherie said...

I'll try it Gretchen! I have two bunches of it now. Maybe we'll have it for lunch today. Email Cassie your shopping list and she and Caroline will fetch your supplies. Ha!

HLITTOMS: Yep, two little girls bombing around in a Trooper instead of a Malibu but the faces will still be laughing and smiling - and getting into some mischief, I'm sure. Just like we did. Hehehe...

Chard; YUM! I like mine with butter, salt, and a splash of lemon juice!

Cherie said...

Oh, lemon juice. This just keeps getting better!

No matter what age they are, kid's accomplishments entitle parents to unbridled pride in them and unlimited bragging rights. It's the LAW!!

Must go get chard. Sounds like a super change of pace.

Carolina said...

Thanks everyone! I am having a blast driving around town! :D

Looks like Chard for dinner! ; )

Cherie said...

Well, Mike, if it's the LAW then I will proudly brag! Thanks for setting me straight on all this bragging/legal stuff. Ha!

And....chard it shall be!

I haven't grown chard since SME left home. The guys don't like it.

It's such an easy thing to grow, and keeps producing all summer. Chard freezes well too.

Cherie said...

We had two bunches of chard steamed in butter and garlic with a splash of lemon - I thought it was really tasty. Tom thought it was Okay, the kids didn't hate it. The best part is everyone ate a good helping with none left over. That's pretty good for around here! I'm going to keep making it and hope that they come to like it as I do.

I'm glad you and bookbaglady told me how to cook it. And it grows well, too. Maybe I'll plant a little bit in next year's garden - if I can persuade the others to appreciate it more this summer.

Thanks for the tips, Tshs!

We have now encountered Swiss Chard! Hooray!

Congratulations Cassie! I'm shouting so she can hear me all the way from my blog!

Cherie said...

She hears you, Sandy, and she's smiling! Thanks!
