Driving Lessons

Tag:ChatOmbre @ 11:06

So, for the past week or so, I’ve been taking driving lessons. First I had 30 hours (spread out over a week, of course) of in-class study, most of which was about the law. Then, yesterday I started on my 10 hours of behind-the-wheel lessons.

Both of my teachers (one in classroom, one in the car) have been very good. I think I’ve learned a lot already. I’ve finished all of my in-class hours, and 3 of my behind-the-wheel hours. Yesterday I went on the expressway! I was nervous when I started driving, but then by the time I’d gotten there I was calm, so it wasn’t that scary. I felt all zoomy afterwards.

Busy week!

Katie spent last week in school – an actual classroom. She was taking a week-long driver’s education course, partially to satisfy state requirements and improve our insurance rates, partially because we just thought it a good idea. This week she’s actually behind the wheel each day, on the road. She loves that part.

The instructor did love homework, though, so we didn’t have much time for our regular studies. Then I was in the hospital for a few days, and we’re not really back to “normal” yet from that.

She got some very good news, too, but I’ll let you read about that from her.
