Katie is now officially sixteen.

And she takes her driving test today.

I’m not sure which I would prefer.

That she passes with flying colors….or that it is another month before she is behind the wheel….

;)

Happy Sweet 16 Katie Bear…

We are spending the evening in Breckenridge….

Chatfield students stage a walk out this morning to protest some proposed changes to the AP US History proposed by the jeffco school board.

A few of my Marrtians excercised the

the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

:)

It was amazing to watch the sea of kids to exit the high school this morning.

Ironically, the time when the kids planned the walk out had Katie exiting her AP US History.

It was an outdoorsy kind of Saturday…

Standard

First with some quiet time…

(The dogs were making is crazy…they needed a run….and were beside them selves when I pulled out the cabin keys)
