it's such an exciting time for them and while as a parent, it's scary, you're right...you just have to get over it...and pray, lots & lots of prayers~
Congratulations Abbey!!!!! And YAY for a new driver in the house :)
Wow! My 15 year old is counting the hours until she earns her permit, but frankly, I'm not ready at all! Although I definitely can see the advantages of having another driver around, especially with a newborn:-)Congratulations to Abbey!
she is so pretty! and looking so grown up. I love the picture of Abbey holding her little sister. Precious. ALL your children are just so sweet. You are blessed :)Having a license is such an exciting time. (I got my license the DAY of my b-day.) Congrats!
Yay, Abbey! Yes, it indeed IS a blessing to have an additional driver in the house. I rarely comment, but your blog is always a gift to me, and I just want you to know that I truly appreciate your blog time. I KNOW it's so hard with a newborn in the house, so again, Thank You. Hope you're having a wonderful day.
Are Andrew's feet bigger than Abbey's? Such a sweet picture of the two of them.
Congrats Abbey, and way to go Sarah on getting a helper that can drive! Can I speed up my oldest's age just so he can help schlep all the kids around?? As soon as I got my license I was driving an hour each way to go to highschool (mostly highway) - what were my parents thinking??
I am really happy that they have to be 18 here to pass their driver's test. But I must admit it's really nice to have another driver in the family. I am going to lose my second driver to college next month. I did a lot of praying. BUT I prefer my son driving himself instead of him getting in the car with somebody I do not know who has perhaps drunk too much.
My second just got her driver's license as well. So nice when there is no one else to take her - she can now take herself to her own activities! Love it!
Yes, you do need a backup driver!! My daughter is 15 (tomorrow) and is "in training". It is soooo hard because you have to pray that the other driver's do their job, too!
I did not even recognize her!!! I seriously thought you got "a driver" LOL! She's so grown up, wow!! emily@remodelingthislife
Perfect timing! College baby leaves. New baby born. Baby girl drives. God is in the details! Pretty Abbey!!
Thank you for sharing the driving part with me... Julia is 12 and I am already pretty nervous about her safety :)
Every one of your posts lately is a major milestone! I don't know how you keep up - or keep up with the blogging, for that matter! WOW!
Congrats Abbey! And congrats to you for getting another emergency driver :)
Congrats to Abbey! And to you, Sarah...I am looking forward to Madison getting her license. It will be nice to have an extra driver! But she currently has a C in her Drivers Ed class.... may be some time yet! : )
Oh, 'new' driver days and rules! We made a rule that the 'new' driver had to have a parent beside them in the front seat for the first month when driving at night. It was a great rule, and saved me many hours of worry.Next comes the third car...but maybe you already have that.
Wonderful! I hate it when we are between drivers, once you've had a teen driver you wonder how you ever got along without them! Congrats to Abbey and hurrah for you! Ps that little Janey is a doll!
Oh my goodness....are her shoelaces tied in those curly little knot tie thingies that we all did back in high school with our Eastlands??? I can't believe that has come back in style! Well, I CAN believe it. Such a blast from the past! Love it.
