I just waved good-bye to my son. He is going with his dad to the Driver's License Bureau to take his written test to obtain his driving permit. Yikes! When did he become old enough? I've already blogged about how quickly he grew up, and now, I'll have proof he is no longer my little boy.
If he passes his written test, this will be a huge step forward for him. He has Asperger's Syndrome and doing anything of this magnitude is a big deal for him. It's been a bit of a struggle to get him to this point. And actually driving will be another huge step. He is reluctant and worried. But one thing I've learned about my son is he has a great ability to push onward, and once he makes up his mind to do something, he will follow through beautifully. I have no doubts he will learn to drive well.
I'm just not gonna be the one to teach him, okay? That journey will fall to his dad...after all, I've done the home educating...right? Fair is fair.
