Ian had an orthodontist appointment today (to have his bottom retainer removed). I cannot tell you how wonderful it was for him to drive himself there and I didn't have to worry about it. (Okay, that's not entirely true. I had to drive from work to the high school to check him out--ugh--and then he got himself there, his next appointment scheduled, and back to school. I learned later that I can just call the school and excuse him.)
Now I can start coming up with errands for him to run!
