The circle of my life

Some of you out of staters may not know this but in MI you can get your learner’s permit at 14 and 6 months. If Ashley could find her cell phone she could reveal to you via it’s count down function exactly when she will get hers. However, since we are unable to locate it you will just have to assume that the time is WAAAY too near. In preparation for this , the last month of my life has been spent preparing her to take the class that leads to this insane event occurring. The only place we can drive is in parking lots with very few cars. Her particular favorite is Northern High School. Here we get to go around in a big circle for as long as my patience will allow. Now if I have had a dramamine my patience is much longer but if not it only takes about fifteen minutes for me to feel sweaty and queasy which puts an immediate end to our circle session. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Every time we get in the car she wants to go to drive. Now call me crazy but should they really let a kid that can’t find their cell phone and are still having trouble with their locker combinations man a vehicle?

I have a son who will be fifteen next month and I am SO glad he doesn’t want to drive yet. He can’t do his locker combination either. At least in Texas it is illegal for kids with provisional licenses to ride with unrelated kids in the car.
