Another milestone

Posted on March 14, 2013 at 3:11pm 7 Comments

I am leaving work i about an hour to take my youngest son to the DMV to take his driver's permit test.

 

Scream out loud ha ha..I guess they all do grow up.

Talk about a roller-coaster ride. As if my Marine isn't enough,  I will have to sit in the car while this youngster learns how to drive. NO wheel of my own! NO brakes!

 

Oh my gosh, the leap of faith I have to take to trust him! HELP !!

I just wondered if your son was at Camp Lejeune? My son is a mechanic there.
