Rebekah is driving!
This was her second try, actually. She hadn't expected the test to be so detailed. Do you know how many feet to stop before a railroad crossing? Or exactly how many feet you have to be able to see in both directions before you make a u-turn? Or when to turn on your headlights in regards to visibility footage? Do you, do you? Me either. I would've failed the test also.
So...this, along with her enrollment in Drivers Ed. this semester at school, has me freaking out just a little bit. Oh, I like the idea of her being able to drive. Not having to drive her to school or to various friends houses on the weekend, not to mention sending her off on errands for me, does have it's appeal. It's the thought of TEACHING her to drive that kind of worries me. Not to mention, in what vehicle? Our choices at this point are Bryan's little stick shift, cherry-red-cop-magnet sports car, or my monster Ford truck...in which I'm worried she'll cause an accident just trying to park the huge thing!
Regardless of what she ends up driving, practice she must. Requirements for an official drivers license include not only passing Drivers Ed and being 16 year of age but also having a learners permit for at least 6 months and 40 hours of driving time with a parent.
Wish us luck!
