Hello ladies and/or gents,

Today was DS last driving time with his instructor. He has 2 more class days left but no driving days. Today was test day for driving. He HAD to score at least 75...well....he scored 81!!!!!!! Yeah! He was stressing about it yesterday and even was crying. I felt so bad for him. I know he has worked hard and he has to work harder than those around him because of his disorder. He gets emotional at times when something means a lot to him. I used my counseling techniques yesterday and today and showed him how far he has come in a little over a month. He seemed to be doing better after our little time together. He only began driving Sept 4th. He has driven probably about 25 hours with us plus what he has driven with his instructor. He has done a wonderful job.

Now the only thing left to do is drive with the DOT when he turns 16 which is in May then he will have his license.

Oh we just got back from watching "Good Boy!" That was a really cute movie.

Have a wonderful night everyone,

Linda

Congratulations to your DS on passing the test!


Now comes the 'new gray hair days' for Mom and Dad as he gets his licence...


I shutter athe idea of ANY of my kids getting their driver's licences. Doesn't mean I won't let them do it, but I'm still going to go gray way before my time.


Peace,
Candes

Candes, he has until May before he can actually get his license and yes I shutter the idea of him driving alone but won't refuse him of his opportinuty either. It isn't going to be easy let me tell ya. He was beaming yesterday. He still has 2 class periods left so we will see what happens after that.
