"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Growing up....

Elizabeth got her driving permit yesterday! After getting her permit, we went to the high school driving range (for cars not golf :) and she drove for the very first time. At one point, as we were hurtling through space, she said in a very robotic voice "Mom, we are going to be OK." She stopped the vehicle; we looked at each other; then we burst into laughter! She said "I don't know why I just said that, but I guess I was trying to comfort myself more than anything!"

How can my little girl be driving already? It seems like yesterday when she was busy drawing and writing her little stories, dressing up in her Pocahontas outfit, and playing with her little Polly Pockets.

Time marches on...sigh.....

  2. I totally agree! Alex can not get her license in TX until she turns 16. She has her permit and Dave and I have whiplash! She is a little heavy on the brakes! :-)

  4. Paula - just wonder how many pictures you have of your sweet Bella? Don't know if you knew this or not but I am the one that took most of them and just recovered the pictures I had lost on my laptop (they were on my ipod). They are "thumbnail" sized but would gladly email them all to you if you don't have them all already. Just email me at hisfirstwife@yahoo.com.
    Thanks,
    Mandy
