We survived!

Today from 3 PM to 4 PM Brett drove for the first time! Hard to believe that the child I gave birth to not even 16 years ago now only needs me to be his co-pilot. The lesson went really well and he managed to keep the minivan where it belonged at all times. We made a loop around our neighboring streets, many of which I had never ventured down before. I will admit that driving down the same 10 streets over and over again for an hour is a bit tedious, but with each "lap" I could see his confidence building!

Poor kid has had his temps since May and just now finally got behind the wheel. First the van needed brakes, then he started feeling sick and didn't want to go anywhere, then he spent the better part of August in the hospital and then his little brother broke the rearview mirror off. I finally managed to get it glued back on yesterday.

Hopefully this is just the first of many UNEVENTFUL driving lessons!

Toyota is having that free teen driving clinic up by Kings Island soon...I didn't pay too much attention to it since Mandy can't get her temps until she starts to wear her glasses (bet you didn't even know she HAD glasses, did you?) but it was in the Sunday paper..
