Today is one of those milestones for Claire (and her parents). She picked up her driver’s license today!
So now our baby is out driving alone. It seems like we spent a lot of our time in a car dropping off or picking up kids. Now, some of that is relieved, and we will be driving fewer miles since an activity no longer will require a trip to town to drop off and later to pick up (60 miles) but now will be one round trip (30 miles) and an hour less of a parent’s time. Driver’s Ed itself was a pain – class between 8-9 pm three nights a week for 2 and a half months. She’s been driving with us for over a year now, so the only thing we really worry about is learning to drive on ice and snow and other drivers.
