Good evening, it is Sunday.
Guess who is an officially licensed driver in the state of Washington? Yup, Hansen! Look out world, look out for a blue minivan. Hah. And yes, if having a kid in college isn't pricey enough (no worries Preston, you are worth it!), we now have two teenage boys on the insurance policy. Maybe even more exciting for Hansen (in the short term) is that the bow he worked all summer saving up for, then special ordered over two months ago, has finally arrived!
Changing the subject, Maren is in Boston for a work conference! The committee she is currently on has been by far the most time consuming one she has ever been on. Audio books! Yup, you can only listen as fast as the narrator reads. And you can only get in a groove if you family leaves you alone. So, for a person who reads faster than even Lillie can talk, and has a family who always pesters her, this has been a challenging year (she had to listen to audio books 3-5 hours per day for most of the last year to fulfill her committee obligations). Tomorrow the winners are announced, then she is free from listening other than just for fun on the drive to work.
So, what do the littles and I do while Maren is out of town? Certainly not clean the house! How about make bigger messes? YES.
See you tomorrow.
