My baby is flying solo!
|Yesterday's drivers test (6-5-13)|
I hope you all had a wondrous 4th. I watched fireworks in my backyard as our neighborhood put on quite a show of it's own and had quite a nice variety. Dear husband took our youngest daughter and her boyfriend into Tempe to watch the "big" show at Tempe Town Lakes, but I wasn't up to it. The monsoon season is upon us here in AZ, and although we haven't had much rain to speak of yet, we've had plenty of dust and wind, not to mention the "threat" each day of some moisture. It plays havoc with my medical issues, so I don't fare well during the monsoon season.
I did manage to take the youngest child (my stepdaughter Abby) out yesterday for some last minute coaching and parallel parking (which she didn't even have to do on the test). I've trained all three of my children for driving as I'm the designated defensive driver with mad racing skills.....yes, I've had training! I started all three of my children at the age of 13 driving through the neighborhoods, empty parking lots, etc., which gave them a solid 2.5 years of driving experience before taking them for permits.
Our youngest has suffered from severe anxiety for many years and even though she's been training for this event for the past 5 years, she let her first permit expire and only recently renewed it. She's been on Prozac for a few months now to deal with her anxiety and it's made a world of difference. She's now legal and I sent her off to visit her mother and uncle by herself today.
So just lettin' ya all know here in AZ to be on the lookout!
I'll be back with new graphics for going back to school.
