We had a great Christmas...I will post pictures soon. But I wanted to let you know what Chase learned today. He learned to DRIVE!!!!

Troy took him out to a subdivision (neighborhood) that is being built near us. It has all the streets paved and lights up, but no houses yet. The roads are covered with snow and ice and they thought it would be a fun place to go for a "drive". Actually Troy just wanted to go somewhere he could spin "donuts" and slide out in the snow. Well, I guess he decided that today would be a great day to start teaching Chase to drive. He is only 12, but at 14 he can get his license here. They were driving our little stick shift pickup. I would have probably started with teaching him in the automatic Tahoe or the Chevy 4x4, and on a clear day, but no... he learned in the stick shift...on ice and snow! He did great...didn't stall once!!! He learned to stop at stop signs and even did a 3 point turn.

I am proud of this kid!

I'm to hear that you don't have to pay a visit to my Dad's shop! That would not be good!

What a handsome boy you have!
