I let him drive around the parking lot after we picked up his official learner's license from the insurance office.
August 29 Kaden can take his full license road test. That seems awfully soon!

The food was good:
bread and oil and vinegar dip-yum
and we had a lovely time.

Kaden missed all 3 games yesterday due to a field trip and driver's ed (and likely a good idea since his head injury on Saturday) but they won 2 and lost 1. Today's win would mean they would advance again.
Conrad was able to go and watch them game this afternoon because he had taken a day off to work on the flooring. Unfortunately the team lost 3 close sets in a row and so, apparently, volleyball is, in fact, actually over for this season....

It was another win for his team!
It's been quite the season for his team so far...

I found this on my computer when I got home from school:
You can check out their video here:
and they'd love to have you subscribe to their channel or their instagram feed here or like their Facebook page here. I'm so thankful for my girls' friends and the fun they have together.

Today, was one of those kinds of LONG days at school. I had yearbook from 3:30-5:00 and then Kaden had driver's ed from 4-6 and volleyball practice from 7-9. I knew Conrad had likely had cereal for supper as the girls were working and so Kaden and I used a coupon to celebrate Another Winter and the first snow fall by also eating at A&W today on the day of the first snow fall this year.
As much as I've longed for my evenings back after this terribly LONG volleyball season, I have enjoyed moments like this with Kaden. I love that we ride to and from school together each day. I love that I can hear about his day in person. I love this time with my son.

Today Kiandra took custody of her new car! Conrad was working but the rest of us came with Kiandra to the dealership to pick it up.
Crazy-ness. How in the world did I become the Mom of a child old enough to buy a new car on her own?!

Instead....right after I snapped this picture...Kaden was hit (on purpose) and knocked down to the ice and he was down for quite awhile. It was a scary moment to watch him lying there and infuriating as I watched the other team laugh and cheer as Kaden was lying there. He made it to the bench but on the next shift was brought to the dressing room to be examined by a mom from the team. She recommended a visit to the ER. So off we went....
So, it was a bit of a different afternoon for us. It was nice to here there were no other injuries as the game got rougher and rougher and that Kaden's team pulled off a win against this strong team.

Then a skim layer went over our old flooring so the pattern won't eventually bleed through onto the new flooring. I'm thankful Conrad has some flooring experience because he knows this kind of stuff.
and then in the early evening we decided to put a formal offer on that house we've been eyeing up this week:
If we get this house, we will barely finish these renovations in our current house before we begin on the next one....

They dropped Kezia off at school
Bought the flooring for the main floor
Ordered new cabinet doors for the kitchen
Looked at the house that we looked at on Tuesday again
Then Kiandra went to work and Kezia helped Conrad pull out the carpet and get it ready for the new flooring...
When I got home from Driver's Ed tonight...the livingroom looked like this:

It was an intense game! Kaden told me this would "for sure" be the last game but I overheard some of the parents talking and it sounds like this win might mean they are eligible for a "wild card" spot in Provincials.....
