Our Boy is 16!

We celebrated Kylen's birthday at Laser Quest (third year in a row?): three games and lots of fun!  Greg and Kylen each got a first.

The Terminator!

He opened cards/gifts from friends the next day.

On his actual birthday, he got the day off school . . . one of the little perks of homeschooling.  He slept in and spent the first half of the day playing video games.  Greg left work early, and we drove to the DOL to get his driver's license.  Guess I won't be spending as much time in the backseat!


First picture was pretty lousy, but the place was almost empty, so it wasn't a big deal when Kylen asked for a retake.  :)
We officially have a second driver in the family!!!
We ate dinner at his favorite restaurant, Red Robin.  Tried their new boneless wings with teriyaki.  They were delicious!
A funny, as we were headed home: I decided to turn on the radio.  Soon after, the song "Backseat Driver" by TobyMac came on.  None of us had listened to it through before.  We just about fell out of our seats when we heard the lines: "Been backseat my whole life / Now I turned 16 so it's time to drive."  LOL!!!!!!!
Back at home, Kylen opened a card from us and small gift: a new shirt!  He loved the card.  :)  And the shirt.  It says, "I find your lack of logic disturbing."
But it didn't stop there.  The following morning, friends treated us to breakfast out!  Wasn't that nice of them?  I sure thought so!
We love our sweet boy.

Congratulations to him! That is very exciting! Can you believe he's a driver now?! Does it take you back to when you got your license?

Thank you, Laurie!! No, it's crazy!!! :)

I didn't get my driver's license until my senior year (from what I remember) and never liked driving. I cried for three days when I got a job that required commuting. People told me it would get easier, but I still hated it even after a whole summer of practice. I'm glad Kylen doesn't have those same reservations! :)
