Take 2

Cory and I went to Waukesha again today, in a second attempt to get his driving permit renewed.  This time we had all the papers necessary, and $35 later Cory had a new permit.  Luckily there wasn’t much of a line so we were in and out of there pretty quickly.  Then we did some shopping and stopped at McDonald’s again for an Iced Mocha (for me), large fries (to share), and a Sweet Tea (for Cory) – just like last week.  Cory says it’s tradition because he and his dad went to that same McDonald’s last year when he first got his permit – and then we went when we tried to renew it, and again when we actually got it.  Yes, he will eventually get his actual drivers license, but for now it’s not a big deal, and it certainly saves us money since we don’t have to pay any car insurance on him until he actually gets the license.

Here he is – Cory with his ranch dressing and fries.  Notice his spiffy Star Trek shirt.  We stopped to check the mail when we left the house, and the shirt he has been waiting for came today.  He had to put it on immediately, of course.  This is the free shirt from Kellogg’s – and I think we’ve managed to collect another 9 tokens since we sent for this one, so we can order another free shirt.  This time he wants blue.  I guess this means he won’t be so jealous when I get the Spock  t-shirt I’m getting from Laurie!  I am threatening to use those tokens to order my own shirt, though.  After all, I’m the one that found the coupons and the sales and bought all the cereal and cookies and token-bearing things.  What do you think?  Red or blue?
