Beep Beep!

A new driver at our house and I'm so HAPPY.

AnnaClaire got her driver's license this week on the third try (and I'm not allowed to talk about the first two attempts) so my running should be cut in half. The beauty of a new driver is that they will drive anywhere at anytime for anything.


And it's not so easy to qualify to drive in our house.

First, you must be trustworthy. We have to know that what you say is the truth. We must fully believe that you follow the rules we have wether we are with you or not.

Secondly, you must have a good attitude. Doing all that is asked with a cheerful response. Being a peacemaker among the children (after all, you will be driving them around).

Thirdly, good driving skills are necessary. A very nice person that crashes into telephone poles kind of defeats the purpose.

And AnnaClaire is all of those things and more. I don't know when I've felt as comfortable with a new driver as I do with her. She is wonderful.

And the big bonus for her is that she now gets a cell phone. (Kids in our house don't have phones at age 10. AnnaClaire will be 18 in a month and she actually survived without a phone all this time.)

You've earned this AnnaClaire and remember that the left turn never has the right of way!!

So glad you left me a comment and, not being sure it was from you, I followed it back to your blog. Wow! I'm so used to reading your posts on Google Reader I hadn't seen the changes you've made to your template. I love this new (at least for me) look. Awesome job!

We have a lot in common when it comes to the honor of receiving a license and a cell phone. None of our children have a cell phone either until they drive. They don't have email addresses. Keeps everything nice knowing I don't need to monitor so many people and so many places.
