Stomping the Invisible Brake: Part 4

The driving adventures continue! This weekend Girly Girl clocked some more hours behind the wheel. In our state, a permit holder must complete 50 hours of driving practice, with 10 of those hours at night. When I first started filling out the daily driving log, 50 hours seemed like such a long time. I'm surprised how fast those hours are flying by!

Friday we left the side streets and headed out on a busier road. Girly was a little freaked out sharing the road with other drivers. Cars behind us, cars beside us, oncoming traffic. It was scary for both of us, but we stuck with it, and she relaxed a bit.

Yesterday, Sunday, we logged 3 hours of driving. Girly didn't want to go back on the main road, so I made a list of places she likes to go. We drove across town to Michael's craft store for a super sale on beads. Then, we headed over to JoAnn Crafts to look thru material and patterns to make a kimono. From there, we went to Aunt Casey's house to visit with her and the twins and hear about their trip to Disney World. All in all, we logged three hours of driving. She got a lot of experience, but most importantly, she's a lot more comfortable behind the wheel.
