I had a great day with Zach on Sunday. He finally got a start date for his job but was told he needed his own chef’s knife. I remembered seeing a cooking store that I always wanted to check out in Vancouver, so we went there. Sure enough, they had everything a cooking heart would desire. We picked up a reasonably priced chef’s knife and spent an hour roaming the aisles and looking at all of the other cooking toys. We spent the drive to and from Vancouver listening to one of my favourite podcasts: The Fighter and The Kid. We laughed our heads off. It was fun.
Sunday night Raegan and I decided to go and see the movie Insurgent (part 2 of the Divergent Series). We watch the first one together (Divergent) and enjoyed it so much that we thought Insurgent was worth going to see. I always have a great time with Raegan because she always laughs at my stupid jokes. And let me tell you, I can be pretty stupid. He we are being all gangster with our 3D glasses.
Next up is Jaime. Yes she got her “L” (learner’s permit) last week. Now she’s always begging to drive. So I indulged her last night and let her drive to Volleyball practice. Raegan was asked by Jaime’s coach to join last night’s practice so I made sure she was strapped in. It was a bit of a harrowing experience but she did ok. Luckily, I have a background in driving instruction (although Wendy doesn’t seem to believe me) and am a patient instructor.
She does need to work on her parking skills…The back tires are up on the curb!
All in all, I think I made some pretty awesome kids. Thanks for incubating them for me Wendy!
