First Time Driver

I guess maybe the day had to arrive, that day was yesterday. I was convinced my son would not, could not, didn't dare! to pass a road test. I was wrong.

He has enough driving hours and was even rear ended while driving to school, thank goodness he was with his Dad, but the other student was a bit afraid when my son got out to see the damage. No one was hurt and it snapped the bumper down which......I'm told, that's what the clips are meant to do. But I was sooooo.......thinking he would not walk away with a temporary license. I was soooo thinking it's his first attempt and we would ride home in brooding silence. Drats! No such luck.

We did drive home in silence but only because I wouldn't let him drive.

Congrats to him on getting his driver's license. A big deal in any teen's life. Do you remember how you got thru driver's ed? I still remember to this day and tell the Jimster. We have to pay for him to do driver's ed. Actually I need to do that soon but he has shown little interest in driving. Yahoo! P.S. Got a terrible eye infection and been laid low. Very much pain but it is getting better now. I can at least see a bit.

Congrats to son. Driving is a big part of a teens life. We, as parents, just have to pray that our teens will be safe when on the road. It's all a part of growing up.
I remember.

LOL. I know the feeling!!!!! Scarey as all get out but just think if we lived in a big city. In the end though, it really does make life easier. I do not remember it being that way with you girls but when the twins got their, I did. Maybe with them it was cause they were working, on the dive team and such and had to cart them everywhere. Like you and I being so far from school it does make it rough. When they were on the diding team, it was EVERY SINGLE DAY except Sunday. But then sometimes they would have a meet or an extra practice to get ready for a meet. Since Tina bought them each their first car, it really did make it easier.

Things will never be the same. Once they learn to drive they want to be independent and on the move all the time.

Congratulations to your sweet son. I know that it's such a big thing for them to get their license. When my sons first started driving, I took a big deep breath, said a prayer..and handed them the keys,though that didn't happen every time they asked.
It's such a great time for them..and such a scarey time for a mother.. so hang in there girl.
