As we packed everything up and I tried my best to clean it up...... Brent told all his buddies goodbye.. He realized that some of them he may honestly never see again.. It's kind of sad to say but that is true.. As life moves you along your path you often times move in different directions.. I am both anxious and excited to see where God sends my sweet Brent for the next chapter of his life.. Where ever it is I can promise I will be along for the ride.
Brook and I left Snyder at about 9 o'clock that night. We stopped by Abilene to pick up Brady. My mom had been keeping him while I got all my stuff done.. He is so helpful..... But this time I had to go without him.. haha Anyway.. We got back to Ft. Worth around 1 am. and got unloaded and to bed around 2. Then had to be at the DPS office bright and shinny at 7 am. for her to get her real driver's license... I almost cried but I guess it's just one of those moments that you realize there is nothing you can do but go with what the world is giving you..
So.... Officially at 7:47 my baby girl became a legal driver of the road... How scary that is for parents and how unbelievably exciting for kids.. May God watch over her while I can't.
So... After a quick nap and a fast shower, Brad and I headed out to take Brady to the ZOO. Employees of the city of Ft. Worth got in free Friday so of course we couldn't resist that. WOW... If I thought Brady had fun last time then he was just over the moon this time around.. We rode the train through the zoo and he could almost make every animal noise before he saw them..
What an incredible, wonderful thing to watch... We both smiled in awe as we watched our baby boy in the middle of a bath of total JOY.. He loves animals and to see them in person is just the greatest thing his little 17 months old can take..
Next we fed the big fish and that was just almost more fun than he could take.. He couldn't decide if the fish or the giraffes on the other side were more fun to watch..
Brook had a fun time cheering this year and it was a wonderful end to her Sophomore year..
By the time we got home, unbeautified and in the bed it was midnight again.. What a wonderful treat though that Brady slept in until 1o am... YIPPIE..
