It's Official...

FunnyMan now has his driver's license!!!


As a mother, THESE make me a li'l nervous...


And before getting behind the wheel, I wish I could send him out like this...




...especially because I KNOW there are drivers out there with THIS sort of mentality...
But, just like my parents, whom cut the apron strings loose, so must I. More prayers, more faith, and a little more Prozac oughta do the trick... right?

One more stepping-stone!
But look at what you'll get in return...no more free Taxi drives taking to and from school ect.

I'm sure he will do just fine. I think that we all doubt ourselves far too much at times. Funnyman will do just great!
Big hugs!

Some mothers get pretty nervous about their children getting their license! "What if he speeds and gets pulled over? What if he get in a crash?? What if his siblings are in the car while they get in a crash with a semi-truck??? Maybe I shouldn't let him drive until he's 18...." Some are THRILLED!!! "OOoooo.. now he can drive to school on his own! Now I can make him run to the grocery store for me now!! Now he can pick the kids up from school!!! I'M FREE!!!!! Except I'll have to drive myself to work now...." :)

so, will he be driving your vehicle? or does he have one? because if he's out driving your car you're not really free.

FUNNY!! We aren't in a large city so ours haven't been bad. Mikele learned here and this is a larger city than Price, and she had the freeway to learn ,too. We let her go to St. George, but just recently. She passed her 6 months of no friends in the car in July. I was so happy when my oldest two started driving because they did activities that required early morning practices. A car ran into the back of Kass his Senior year. He had a Honda Passport and the other kid had a truck. The truck pushed a car under the back of his bumper. The passport was fine. Kass was mad because it was snowy and the kid didn't care and said it wasn't his fault. He didn't even ask if the car full of girls were ok. He was just spouting off how it wasn't his fault for going to fast in those conditions. there were lots of witnesses. Kass called Steve, of course. The car under Kass was munched. He and Mik are the only ones in a fender bender. I wish you could control the other drivers.

AH HA HA HA !! I love that last pic!

It's scary stuff! Especially because kids won't listen and still text behind the wheel! (or at least some kids *I* know!) It terrifies me!

My Justin has his permit but we haven't taught him to drive at all. When did you find the time to teach him? I'm jealous!

It's nerve wracking for sure...but such a huge stepping stone for them. I thought I would have a bleeding ulcer by the time "S" got home the first time...it didn't help "T" was with her :) Good Luck...don't pull out too much hair!
