Another Rite of Passage in the Family
Well, October 24th has arrived which means that our youngest turns 16 today. Just about every warm-blooded U.S. citizen knows what that means—driver’s license time. After dutifully practicing parallel parking yesterday and reviewing all the necessary instructions about turn signal indicators, which direction to turn the wheels when asked to park on a hill, etc., Jonathan went today and took his driving test which he passed with flying colors. Yep, it’s official. The fourth Snowden boy is a legally licensed driver. Hopefully in the not too distant future when we work out some additional transportation issues, it will reduce my chauffeuring responsibilities. With all of his extracurricular activities, that is going to be a joyous day.
