He's DRIVING?!?!?!?!?!?! NOOOOOOOOO!

GamerBoy is my baby. Yes, he's almost 20 but I don't care how old he is! And I know that this milestone was inevitable but still... like I said, he's my BABY.

He signed up for a driving course last April. He is starting to feel the squeeze as he only has a year to deal with the course work and tests before his class fee won't cover anymore and he has to pay it again. As long as he has finished the class work and study time and has his name on the list for the actual in car work he is covered. (And if he has to do it again he knows he has to pay it all! We already help pay the first time and a year is quite sufficiant to get that done.)

So he has been feverishly studying the AAA book, the states's driver's handbook, and making notes. Today I took him to the class and he tested on the first 5 chapters of the book. His scores were between 80 and 95 and he says 70 and above is passing. He has another week to study before the next class.

Yesterday Dak took him to a local church that has a large parking lot and put him BEHIND THE WHEEL!!! I didn't go with them and I have mixed feelings about that. I would have liked to have seen him drive for the first time but I probably would have made him nervous or cried or tried to grab the wheel and step on the brake. :) Probably a good thing I didn't go. But Dak said he did really good.

Did I mention that he is drooling ever time he sees a corvette??????


  1. Drivig is scary, isn't it? Now if we can just get them to focus on the education part of the equation, right?

  2. I remember learning to drive in the parking lot of the local grocery store!
