Driver's Training 101 x Three
I'm at it again with a new teenage driver in the house! My youngest daughter got her permit last month and begs to drive whenever I go out on my errands. She asked how her driving was yesterday on our way to shop for her school clothes in Spokane ... my reply, "Well, honey, I'm not quite ready to relax and take a snooze yet!" My first offspring to drive, didn't get his license until after he got his "tank" (as in M1-80 Army tank) license. When he'd come home to visit and after finally getting his driver's license, my heart raced each time I rode in the car with him. Imagine his driving skills after first learning on a vehicle with a jet engine strapped to it! His "puddle jumping" maneuvers in my van gave me worry lines and gray hair! My oldest girl faired ok with her skills and is a good driver. Here we go again. The only driving Nathen will be doing is in the "driving mom nuts" category!
