Jonah's First Set of Wheels

Jonah's first set of wheels and I don't mean hot wheels this time.  It is hard for me to imagine my son driving on his own but in just over 2 short months and a couple of days Jonah will be able to take his permanent test and if he passes you may very well pass him on the highways.  In our state you have to wait 6 months after you turn 16 before you can take your permanent test, so we really haven't been looking for Jonah a car until he was at camp last week.  That was when Phillip came upon a car and test drove it.  It was nice but not really what we were looking for.  It was that car that got Phillip and I in the car shopping mood and of course we thought it would be easier to narrow down the options without Jonah.  By Thursday evening we spotted this Lexus, sporty and reasonably priced.  Phillip and I test drove it and liked it.    We picked Jonah up from camp on Friday and said nothing about the car until we were almost home that's when we spilled the beans and of course, he wanted to go immediately and drive it.

Long story short, Tuesday at lunch him and his dad picked it up and he spent all afternoon with the help of his dad washing and waxing it.  Then, not even an hour later a bird messed on it.  Needless to say he immediately clean it off.   Got love that kid!!!!  Hope he continues to take care of the car that way.
He does look sharp in front of his new wheels.  

And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You,
O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Psalm 9:10

Blessing to all~
