OK~ It's official. Our 16 1/2 year old passed driver's education and has all the papers to take to the Iowa D.O.T. Strangely, he came if with his papers in his hand and says "We have to go sometime to get the actual license." I was taken back by this....He seriously could care less when he actually has his license in his hand. I recall that I could not wait to turn 16 and get my driver's license.
There's recent research that has been done, and it shows that teens prefer cell phones over cars- this Mom believes that. I would go so far as to say that teens prefer TECH over cars. Technology puts them in contact with their friends 24/7 through Facebook & Twitter. For whatever reason Garrett still has no desire to drive, but in due time I am sure he will want to.
So....next week, one day, we will venture to the Iowa D.O.T.- Still hard to believe that he is old enough to be driving! Where did all of those years go? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
