Brooke & the DMV

I just had to share this story......
The state of Kansas is changing the driving limit to 17 & if you have your permit by Dec. 31st, 2009 you are grandfathered in and you can get your license at 16.

So, with everything going on we waited until the last minute to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

We saw on the news that the lines were long...but we thought if we got up at 5am and got there by 7am we wouldn't have to wait.

Wrong!!

We woke up to a couple more inches of snow on the ground.....it was still snowing. I'm not comfortable driving on the roads...but it was important to Brook.  (Dave can't drive for 6 weeks because of his surgery). 

We get to the DMV and the line was huge!!! We had to wait outside for 2 1/2 hours...took us almost 3 hours for Brooke to get her driving permit.

Like Dave said....this is one story we'll be telling for years!!  

It was still dark when we got there....it was still snowing and boy was it cold.  We bundled up ....but failed to wear the proper shoes...our feet were frozen!!  In fact I sent Dave a text message with a picture of the line and my words were "my feet are frozen and I'm in pain".   :)

See ya!
