let me catch everybody up- in case I didn't tell you or you didn't get the hint on facebook....I am in the process of getting my driver's license I have the test on April 4th and I believe other than practicing the 2 pt. turn around (or the irritating backing in to a parking spot) and parallel parking I think I have a handle on the driving thing. I am still scared of the big trucks and being run off the road (which is what happened when I last had a permit...18 wheeler blew by me and ended up about 50 ft from going over a ravine) but it is not an irrational fear anymore. I bought a "new" car....and I love having my car. Cassidy got a new job which should make moving out of her horrid living situation easier, sooner Abi turned in her application for the Clarkson School last week. We will probably here in about 3 weeks. She scored 1's at the county level of Solo and Ensemble Festival so she will perform in May at All State. She also will be playing in a side by side concert with the Navy Band. Moving to Maryland and away from my Grandma and her dad seems to have been the best thing for her. Every once in awhile I have the "what if's" about how Cassidy would have turned out if I had left earlier...but you can't turn back time. Only problem with all of these things (the youth summit, etc.) is it costs lots of money and that is still one thing in short supply. I love coming here and seeing my family.
