Wednesday morning I ended up driving both older boys to school, because Levi had a project and had asked for a ride the evening before. What I didn't realize was that I would also be making several more stops after dropping everyone off at their respective schools. We loaded the car at 8:15. Plenty of time to make the 8:30 tardy bell for middle school. I had forgotten that I needed to take three bags of deer corn to one of the ladies at the FSA. Across the street we drove to the mill house porch. Then we were on our way. Of course we got behind the recycle truck on 73. I glanced at the clock, it was now 8:23. I asked Levi what time the tardy bell rang. He didn't know, but I could tell he was getting anxious. He muttered something about staying on gold level and not getting any tardies for the year. We all cheered when the truck turned at the next road. Then we caught two red stop lights. He then tries to tell me how to pull into parent drive at the middle school. Seriously son? Like I haven't been here before, I get that you want to stay on gold level and all, but don't tell me how to drive. I smiled when I saw several cars pulling in the line in front of us. "You're golden", I said as I dropped him off. Cute, right?
