Hays passed his driver's test with flying colors! The drive check person (from the DMV--what is her title actually?) said that he was one of the best she has ever had! I agree. He really is a great driver. I had none of those "on my goodness" feelings of fear mixed with anxiety when he drove away or when he drove Maggie to school the next day. He's great! I did, however, have some weird mommy feelings about my boy growing up and my entire world driving away in that FJ. I'm just such a proud mommy!!!
I'm loving what a good brother he is being. . .and good son. He is communicating well. He is being thoughtful. He is asking to help out. He is willingly taking his siblings places. I am so very proud of him and so very thankful for him. For 16 years I thought my boy getting his license would be so freaky and it is just so normal. I love him so much and he is turning into such an amazing young man and I love it--I love him!
