Hays got his permit this week and aside from the tension headache (for me) the first day, it has been smooth sailing! The kids are not allowed to say anything to him and they are not allowed to make a big deal about buckling up. He's a pretty good driver. I like this one year permit thing instead of just saying "here's your license" like they did for us more than 20 years ago. I know that when Hays does get his license next year, I'll know exactly how he drives and due to my fantastic coaching skills (okay, backseat driving), he'll be a superb driver by that time!
And he looks EXACTLY like Andy in this pic. So weird!
