Younger Son Rocks! Older Son Drives Soon!

I am so proud! Remember that the Younger Boy got a school-level award for his computer art last month? Well, he got a call today that he also got a district-level award and has moved on to the regional competition. We did not expect this! The best part of this is seeing him looking proud of himself. It's true, people sit taller and puff up a bit when they are proud or happy. He has just bounced around the house all day. He is singing and listening to loud music and being such a joyous person.

And if you had known him when he was severely depressed, couldn't even take a day at school without falling apart, and lashing out at everyone around him, you'd never know it was the same boy.

In other child news, the Older Boy got his learner's permit. If only we owned a car with an automatic transmission that he can practice on! The exDH will be here this weekend and maybe he can try out the rental car (ha). I certainly don't think I will borrow a car to try out a new driver on--so we will have to have him do his practice driving from 6-8 am and hope for the best. Um, or teach him to drive the stick shift.

Yay for younger boy AND older boy!!! I would be happy to offer the services of my car for him to try to learn on (you riding shotgun, of course). It's easy to drive, and super safe, plue, it only has 4 cyl, so it won't go very fast, haha.I am looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. Also, we were thinking about bringing the pup to play with Scrunchy - maybe outside? Nibbler doesn't have a yard or any other dogs to play with, plus Bryce hates him. Let me know if that's okay with you.
