Not ready for the big time...

It's been a long time since I've had to teach a new driver. So I'm thinking, hey, we'll get Sonshine behind the wheel on the way to school. It's not a long trip and just enough driving challenges for the newbie driver.

Yeah, no...

With a lot of jerky stops and starts, he made it to the end of the block and we traded seats.

It'll be a trip to the church parking lot on the corner this weekend to get a feel for the car and to practice acceleration and braking before we put those to the test in real time/real world situations. :)

Poor kid. He was very nervous. I can't blame him, but all things considered, he did okay.

I think maybe it might be quite a while before Fort Worth sees this new driver tootling around ... LOL. I hope the church parking lot is big! Are you the best one to teach him to drive? Maybe Dan would be better ... ?
Bless his heart.
Love you all

Empty parking lots are a great place to practice. Have fun!

New housing developments where they've put in lots of roads but are just starting to build the houses work really well for driver training. If you have any nearby.

Good luck to Sonshine. And Mom.
