Against my better judgement, (just kidding.........I think) I took Amanda to the DMV today so she could take her driver's license test and SHE PASSED!!! Most of her friends have had to take both the written and driving tests twice - but Amanda passed them both on the first try! She did a GREAT job! She has been looking forward to this day for a long time. Within a few hours of passing the test, she got a call from someone for a babysitting job and she told them she could drive to their house herself. At which point, my heart about fell to my stomach! This is scary stuff!
On the up-side of things, I now have someone to run errands for me and go "fetch" Sam from her various activities!
