Home Vegas


by Shawni

I’m at the airport heading to Las Vegas for a national board meeting for American Mothers. I’m excited to be involved with all that we will get to talk about despite feeling a little bad for cutting in front of a few people in the airport security line to make the flight only to have it delayed (I did ask for permission of course). Sorry about that, fellow passengers…

Also, I backed into my in-law’s car the other night. I was a little distracted with Max sitting beside me begging to let him pleeeeeeaaaaase drive. I was a really good driving example that night.

Just thought I would share.

Love, Shawni

Thanks for the chuckle today. And sorry about your MIL's car! Happy Birthday (belated) this week! You are a strength to so many women, and a true inspiration. I honestly don't know how you do all that you do. Blessings for a safe trip!

My mom's there. (She's on the board.) Her name's Vivian and she's from Georgia. Tell her hello. 🙂

I have more backing into people I know stories than I'd like to admit.

I talked my daughter out of driving to school this morning. I said, "Are you sure you want to drive today during busy traffic, it's been a while since you've driven?", she thought about it and said no.
The only thing that didn't work in that scenario was that it was on the way to seminary, so there was no traffic, but she never caught on to my deception.

You probably were a good example…of how easily we are distracted when driving. What better thing to learn NOW!!

So relating to that distraction! Celia starts driver's Ed here on Saturday and she's got that pleading look in her eye.

To be a responsible driver you need to know how to be a responsible passenger.
