Buckle your seat belt - Hannah is behind the wheel!
Yesterday Hannah took the South Dakota "driver's permit" test and passed! The only question she got wrong was: "How far ahead should you turn on your turn signal?" and she answered: "Several blocks ahead!"
No, actually, that is a question that Heather got wrong when she took the driver's permit test (20 years ago.) Why I remember that is a mystery. I lost my purse twice today, but I remember the question my big sister got wrong on her drive-test....
Back to Hannah - she passed the written test, and they printed up her new Instructional Permit, right then and there.
Hannah has 3 months to drive with me before she can be a solo driver. I'm not sure if I'll survive. Today I picked her up from school and she jumped into the driver's seat. I had her drive all around the parking lot at school to warm up. Then she practiced parking and backing up (while I gripped the door handle.) Then we headed out in to the wide world.
We drove through the quiet neighborhood behind our house and she did great. I only had to grab the wheel and swerve to miss a parked car once....
I have a feeling she's going to want to drive to school tomorrow.... Wish me luck!
