I survived

I took all 4 kids out by myself for the first time. More to the point, it was my first time driving anywhere other than the local store which is a minute away from the house, by myself without Rene or another experienced driver in the car! And I was going to a place I had never been before and had to study the map to figure out how to get there.

I was going to a La Leche League meeting, and getting there went fine. The kids enjoyed themselves, there are a couple of other homeschooling families there with older kids so Lana and Kaya had a great time too. We went out to eat afterwards too and the kids all did great.

I had forgotten though to plan a route home and I ended up driving round in circles for a bit before pulling over to call Rene at work and ask how to get home. He ended up confusing me more by mentioning about 5 differents routes with multiple road names I could possibly take. So I hung up (after saying goodbye of course) and just improvised and got home ok. phew.

Glad to be home now. For another hour or so then it's time to go drive and pick Rene up from work...(wish me luck)

Two things here:
1. I'm so proud of you for learning how to drive, and then actually driving! I remember a young woman who told me that she'd never learn to drive because it was just too scary. It seems that young woman has turned into a SAHM. Good for you!!

2. It seems you've inherited the same directional senses as your father and brother have. Neither of them can find their way out of a wet paper bag, although to be fair, Doug is far worse than your dad.
