Student Driver...beep beep

Look over your shoulder, remember to signal, easy...easy...okay, STOP!


It seems like yesterday that she was riding a 3 wheeler, and now I'm giving her driving lessons. Yikes! If this doesn't give me more gray hairs, I don't know what will! Jenna will be 19 in April and she's finally decided it's time to get behind the wheel. I've taken her out a few times now, and after her 3rd lesson, she's feeling a bit more at ease. Still not ready to brave a busy street, but these things take time I guess. She is overly cautious, but that's a good thing, right? Her driving test will be the last week in February and unlike most teens, she's not looking forward to it. I'll be glad when the lessons are over, but that's when the real worrying will begin. :(

Hey at least she waited til 19 to get behind the wheel! I didn't get my license til 19 or 20 also and my Mom said she was THANKFUL I waited that long. I hope my little boy does the same and WAITS - though I doubt it...;) At least I have 8 more years til he's 16...:) Love the picture of Jenna!

Oh Nancy...she is ADORABLE! I truly think teaching our kids to drive is one of the hardest things to endure for both us and them! Mine used to always say stop using your imaginary brake pedal..haha! My youngest just got her license and sounds like Jenna...very cautious and after driving with my son...I THANK GOD for overly cautious :). Good luck to you both...I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!
Hugs,
Nancy
