the introverted mallard duck // written test




It was a beautiful 75 degree Saturday -- so what else do you do than go to a park?! Bree found some perfect trees to set her new hammock up in, so Sarah and I were sitting on dry rocks in the creek..because a hammock doesn't really fit 3 people. ;) We were just chatting and I looked over my shoulder to see this gorgeous mallard duck swimming towards me.

"BREE - SARAH - LOOOOKKKKK." Suddenly, it turned around and climbed up the bank, waddled through the forest, and then plopped itself back in the water once it had passed us. I joked that it was an introverted duck. :P My dad looovvves mallard ducks, so Bree tried to get a photo of it...that was her best one. lol

 It's time for me to take segment two of drivers ed! I have almost reached 30 hours of drive time, which means I get to go take the written test. I have two days of prep classes and then I have to take the final exam. I still have to get two hours of night time driving.......I'm scared. 

Did night time driving scare you??
Do you like hammocks?

    1. Well, I need 50 hours to actually get my license -- and I have to pass the written and road test. The road test is where I drive with someone from the DMV and they have me do all these things...it's a big scary. lol!! But, seriously, 120 is CRAZY a lot!

  2. I'm sure you'll do fine in the exam/test, Julia! I'll pray for you about it, nonetheless, though! ;) <3 That is a pretty portrait of you, btw. :)

  3. I can't say night driving scares me because I don't know how to drive yet...XD I do like sitting the car at night when someone else is driving though. ;)
    Good luck w/ drivers' ed part 2!! I'll be praying! (I almost put 'driving' instead of praying...LOL...that would not be good.) When do you have to do all the prep stuff, and take the test?
    And sure, I like hammocks! They're tough to get out of though. :P

    1. lol! Well, then, does the thought scare you? Because it really does scare me.. I mean, now you've got to worry about high and low beams, if you're too close to the edge or the oncoming car - and OH NO what if a deer or some sort of animal decided to cross the road?! noooo!! I just want to stay home...lol Thank you.. I honestly cherish prayers! <3 Um..next month! It's May 10th or something or another.. Haha! That is so true, getting out of hammocks is horrible. ;)

  5. You'll do great Julia!! In Alberta you need to have your learners and be suspension free for a year, then you can go for your road test. I don't think you need a written for your drivers, just your learners...but I'm not sure.

    1. Oh interesting!! You have to have your permit here for 90 days without any sort of suspension as well. My parents could even take it away from me if they felt they needed to..thankfully, I don't think they do! :P

  6. Yup, same in Alberta unless you can prove you are self supporting or married....though they still might be allowed until you're 18..I don't quite remember.
