On Monday, my son Trevor got his driving temps.  We went to the DMV and got the license and then drove to the church parking lot for his first behind the wheel experience.  He did a good job - a little fast on the backing up, but overall it was a good experience.  Then Tuesday I picked him up after school and we went again to the church parking lot and he did some practicing and said, "I'm ready to try going on the road."  So we did.  He realized putting it all together with watching your speed, other cars, being in your lane, watching for people crossing in the middle of the street/walking their dogs, and so on was a lot so we made it a few blocks and back to the church parking lot where he needed to stop and actually breathe.  He listened to my feedback (which doesn't always happen these days), and calmly said, "I think that is enough for today."  I was actually glad that he has realized that driving is a serious thing.  I made this card for him which he laughed this morning when he got it.
