Despite masks & best intentions our social distancing was sorely tested this week. But. It couldn’t be helped. After waiting till the absolute last minute, it was time to welcome our newest family member… Wade!
We have needed a benzine (gasoline) car for over a year, ever since diesel cars were banned in Stuttgart. And we only have diesel cars. We also needed a little commuter car for Tess & Christian. For when they can go back to work & school. A little automatic commuter car. Neither can drive stick shift. And both our diesel cars are stick. And I’m a terrible teacher. Or so they tell me.
Our dear friends are moving back to the states this week. It is an incredibly difficult move, in a very trying time, due to a personal hardship. Of course we needed to help. The best way to help was for me to sew masks, and to take those last items they couldn’t ship. So we are now the proud owners of a beautiful, super comfy, big red chair and a tiny, zippy Smart car.
Tess & I have both been dying to get out of the house, she agreed to a “reveal” photo shoot with our new Smart. Our Wade. I’m not sure who I love more, her or Wade ❤
Wow, that is one one cool car!! Tell Tess Congrats! That photo of Tess, the one showing her green eyes! OMG!!! Best photo EVA!! My girls are doing drivers ed now… & both have their driver permit! OMG too!!!
The twins are DRIVING!?!?! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! What happened? How’d they get so big?
Belle petite voiture et Tess est très photogénique
I imagine how lucky Tess feels when she sits behind the wheel. A beautiful green-eyed girl like my mother, and the hair color is stunning!
My mother has green eyes too! I love green eyes. So unique & beautiful.
Hey Toiny love the little smart car the colour is amazing, Tess always does your photo shoots proud. I am sitting in a nice cool breeze in the awning of our lockdown bubble in a caravan park right by the beach, its lovely very quiet and we can walk,swim or bike around, hardly any people around to worry about. Question please if I can ask, I have dreadful trouble finding my way around the lockdown chat, challanges etc – last weekend I could not for the life of me find the unlocked designers challanges – in the end I gave up. I could get into the general chat but nothing else – any help or ideas would be fab. Stay well and safe.
Hi Christine, your little beach sounds lovely. Being stuck in caravan for months is not so lovely, but at least it’s near swimming. Let me see what I can do to make those lockdown challenges easier. I have my thinking cap on. For now, I’ve included you to get the April 18 badge, please check your inbox on the forum?
PS when I clicked on the Community Lockdown for 18Apr all I got was previous ones nothing for the 18th came/comes up???? Sorry to be a pain, I am very new to digital scrapping and these challanges are a great way of learning new stuff
Pretty adorable car!!!!
[…] need to stretch my legs, get some fresh air, and clear my mind. Yesterday Tess & I piled into Wade, daypacks into the back & drove to meet […]
