Our youngest, now 16, has been getting in his driving time since receiving his driving permit (above, he’s behind the wheel of a $95,000 Mercedes SUV that Kevin brought home last summer. He didn’t drive that, no matter how bad-ass he was feeling). He’s not half-bad, though he’ll have to stop driving on the side of the road and inch toward the middle if he wants to avoid popping tires and hitting mailboxes.
In other news, he went to the first tryout of the tennis season and was told by his coach, Jill, that he made the varsity team. Pretty good for a sophomore. He’ll likely be playing third doubles with his friend Ryan Hamilton. Rafa Nadal need not worry—yet.
