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.
