Mike’s car on a dyno machine (measures the horsepower). His car tested 605 horsepower with 615 foot pounds of torque (which is low because it was too hot outside?). Anyway, if you understood any of that and want to check it out, click below.


pomp and circumstance



I cannot believe my little Lo is graduated from preschool and is moving on to kindergarten. Not only do I think of her as 2 or 3 years old, I am sad we are leaving our preschool. The teachers and staff are so loving. They have done a great job at preparing my Lo for kindergarten. We are also going to a different elementary school from most of her friends. I am going to miss them and their moms. We have had such a great group of ladies.

The graduation ceremony was so cute and the kids acted so grown up. I loved watching them.

This is the ULTIMATE in driving!

Mike was invited to participate in the Porsche Road Show. It is a traveling, mini, Porsche driving school. I was lucky enough to get to participate too.

We drove in two different conditions and two different types of Porsches. We drove on a road course first in different 911 models. Mike and I rode together, taking turns driving. We switched after every two laps. Then we switched cars after each two drivers. We followed in a line of 4 cars with an instructor in the front. We were suppose to follow his line around the course.

The second driving we did was on a coned off course with an instructor. We drove the less powerful Porsches and concentrated on handling. The instructors would tell you when to brake and when to punch it.

The event was a fun experience with lots of adrenaline. Transitioning back to my SUV was a little tricky. It didn’t handle the corners quite the same or have that impressive 0 to 60 in seconds feel.
