Happy birthday Alexandra

Alexandra turned 14 today ! Mom had gotten a cake and we had dinner together with Gary and his parents at a Chinese restaurant. Some of Lexi’s friends were there too. The big present was a new iPhone but we had tricked Lexi a little. The phone store is next to the grocery store and we pretended we were going for groceries. Alex might have had a suspicion but wasn’t sure until we made a 90 degree turn right in front of the store.

Roos has a job

Today Roos started her first job. She’s working in the Von’s supermarket in Aliso Viejo. She’s making about as much per hour as I made per day when I had my first job at the Berghuizer Papierfabriek : fl 29 versus $11 !

Tomorrow Roos will also have her first of four Saturdays of drivers school. This allows her to get her permit and with that she can start to practice driving a car. From there she can get her regular license.
