Our New Driver-January 9th, 2009
Yesterday, my 15 yr. old (we'll call him "Nascar")...got his Learner's Permit for driving! Yahoo:) I picked him up from high-school and then picked up his siblings. We all drove over to the DMV and I took pictures of this momentous moment in time. He was nervous but so excited! There must of been another dozen families there doing the very same thing, because this place got crowded real fast. All the moms were pacing the floors and the dads kept track of the time. Little kids were taking turns measuring themselves at the height-stick by the door.
I remember going with our eldest-who's on a mission now. At the time he was 6' 4''...now he's almost 6' 7". People do stare when he walks into the room. Casanova is now 6' 2" and our little Nascar is 5' 9". His sister is about to pass him up at 5' 5" (She's only eleven too!). Measuring height is a BIG deal in our house :)
Well, today I let Nascar back out of the driveway and drive over to his buddie's house. We were all laughing with sheer terror, but he did fine (a little too fast-but he'll get the hang of it!). When he climbed out of the car, he said, "I can't wait till you come to get me!". I can...just kidding!♥
