My daughter is now driving on her own. After 9 months of supervised driving, she is able to move about the city in her own car.
This has proven to be a relief. Taking her the various places (music lessons, shopping) took up a good bit of time. She is now able to drive herself to her various music lessons without having to take one of her parents.
It is also cutting her day a lot shorter. Since she spends her school afternoons in a different city, relying on the bus got her home at 5:15 every day. Driving means she gets home at 4:30.
Many of my friends and co-workers have asked if I’m worried. Not really. She is a cautious driver, and she is responsible. She won’t do anything stupid.
So we are celebrating this milestone in her life, and letting her enjoy some more freedom!
