Stephen finally got his driving permit today. I must say I have been grateful that he waited so long to get it. In our state (Florida) you can get your driving permit at 15, but you have to drive with a licensed driver for a year. I know that I am getting older, but not dealing with having him drive everywhere has been nice.
He turned 16 on December 2. Yep. Growing up. I love that he is finally able to do this, as I like for the kids to be independent.
I have taught him how to do dishes (although most of the time they aren’t the cleanest), his own laundry, and some ironing. I am thinking of a future where he will not live at home forever. I know that there needs to be more, but taking it one day at a time.
So. Happy New Year?
