Talking About It Tuesdays #8

Today's a big day for both my younger boys! My youngest is testing for his driver's license this morning and while I know he couldn't care less about passing or driving I really hope he does well so I can just be DONE with teaching driving... it's my least favorite subject.  

My middle son is preparing for his huge SCAP dinner (Senior Culinary Arts Project) that he has to serve tomorrow morning; I'll have many more details and hopefully lots of yummy looking photos to share later in the week since we get to sample his menu.  I just know he's so nervous about everything going well both today and tomorrow since this is a HUGE portion of their grade. I know he's got the skills to pull it off though.   

Both of them seem way less nervous than I feel but I think that's a good thing.  Meanwhile I'll try to put it all out my head and focus on our fun party.  Thank you all for linking up with us each week; keep the fun content coming!

    1. Thank you! Evan passed and we'll see how Alec's meal turns out today; I can't wait. I'm sure even if everything doesn't go according to plan it will still taste delicious.

    1. I can't fault him, I never wanted mine either and waited until I was nearly 18 to get it... with a giant nudge from my own parents so he's got me beat getting his at nearly 16 1/2 (the earliest they can get their license in our state).

  9. Good luck to them! My youngest was not interested in or excited about driving at all, which was so strange to me! I couldn't wait to drive. I still enjoy driving and he still doesn't, so I guess that's just how it is. ha Thanks for hosting the linkup! Have a great week.

    1. I never wanted my license either and don't really enjoy driving so I get where he was coming from. I keep telling him he'll grow to like it if only for the freedom it will give him.

    1. I don't think he'll want to (or even get to) drive often since all our cars are usually occupied by his older brothers but at least he can if he needs to!

  16. Happy to join in for the first time! I remember those drivers license days. It's a good thing -- but not without worry!

  17. I hope both your sons do well! My son did not drive until he was in his early 20s, He rode a bicycle most of the college years. He's a wonderful driver now. He's also a wonderful cook and cooks dinner almost every night for his family. Valuable skills!

    1. It is so nerve wracking! It's not much easier the first few times they go out by themselves after they get their license either...
