Most Sunday mornings I make my trek to the grocery store, preferably early while most people are either sleeping or in church. Most Sundays boy # 3 is the one that goes with me, then boy # 2 has to bring everything in and put everything up. Some Sundays they will switch out. This Sunday boy # 2 gladly got up to go with me, why you may ask….well boy # 2 was promised the keys. He is now 16 and wanting to drive, so we are taking baby steps. He does pretty good at staying in his lane, but he needs work on his turns. His backing up was okay as well. I survived it even though it began to rain before we got there and I wasn’t sure if he would start freaking out….as it is he can’t yet handle the radio or even the AC as this distracts him. We will continue this on Sundays and soon he will be able to get his driver’s license.
It’s scary and exciting at the same time for me…and admittedly sad, my baby is growing up and will soon leave the nest.
