Lucas went to the movies yesterday with a friend, and his friend drove.  Gulp.  I'm not ready for this growing up business at all!  Fortunately it is a boy he's been friends with since 1st grade and I know he's a responsible kid and has good parents, but yikes, it was scary!

It really is!  And you know what else is crazy?  We just registered for his first college visit.  I remember when we were visiting preschools and it really doesn't seem that long ago.  Aaaagggghhhh!

Oh my goodness, Laura!  Before you know it, he'll be driving around others.  Crazy!

Yes, Lucas got his permit last summer and will go for his license in 2 months.  Yikes!

That is scary stuff! Devin is not too far away from getting his learner's permit, I'm not ready for it yet.

I was pretty good about it.  I just asked him to text when they got there.

That is such an odd feeling. I remember a few years ago when dd was doing that for the first time. Resist the urge to have him call to check in often.
