Watch out Arizona!!
Michelle has her driver's license!
Yes, my baby is old enough to drive. Sad but true.
For some reason I am terrified to let her out the door on her own.
(Probably related to the fact that she is my BABY!!)
Last night I did let her drive to mutual.
My husband celebrated her independence--and ours.
I wanted to cry.
And I was down on my knees in fervent prayer the entire time she was gone.
So that is a bit of an exaggeration,
but I did have a fervent prayer in my heart the entire time.
And I was so very relieved when she returned.
Tomorrow I may let her drive to the mall to shop for a prom dress.
She also has her first date on March 6.
She is going to the Mormon Prom (we have had to provide a substitute since the one at the school is so raunchy) with the boy next door.
I am so glad.
He has been one of her best friends since she was three.
And in fact, he taught her how to ride a bike.
So, who could be better to go with on your first date?
Although, dating and a driver's license is just about more than I can handle.
Personally, I wish she could just stayed small.
