Yesterday was a fun filled day for me, hubby, my son and both my granddaughters. Last month my oldest granddaughter Sarah graduated from high school. I shared that milestone with all of you. Yesterday was another milestone for Sarah as she turned 18 years old.
When she was 15 and getting ready for her learners permit hubby and I talked with our son about buying her a new car when she graduated from high school. We agreed that along with the graduation she had to be good and also get good grades. Graduation wasn't enough, Sarah agreed to those terms and she graduated from high school with a 3.83 GPA. Works for all of us. She did her part and now it was time for us to step up to the plate and do ours.
She had already picked out the kind of car she wanted, a Honda Civic LS Sport. She wanted it in black or white. She ended up with a dark gray. The other thing that she had to do was wait until her 18th birthday. She mentioned at lunch (after taking possession of her car) that the last month has taken a few years to pass. We have spent the last month securing the car she wanted, getting all the paperwork done (except for DMV) and the insurance done and ready for signature. Her signature.
Here's a slide show with just a few pictures of what she went through yesterday. The first picture of her and her father, if you look very close you will see her toddler picture between them. Grandpa and grandma are very proud of you Sarah.
