Dare to Drive in Davis?

Oh what a feeling–Toyota!  That was the jingle back in the 1980’s when I was a teenager learning how to drive.  Last week, I sat in the passenger’s seat as my daughter took the wheel.  And oh what a feeling it was!!  Feeling scared?  Yes!  Feeling old?  Yes!  Feeling like my life just passed in front of me?  Yes!!

OK, I’m not going to embarrass her by writing sappy things like “I remember when she was a little baby, saying ‘My daddy!’ with the cutest of smiles…”  But I am going to embarrass her by posting this picture that I took as I firmly put on my seat belt and prayed for dear life!  (and the lives of those on the road in Davis).  When you see this student driver on the roads of Davis, please lift up a prayer for her to focus on driving.  And while you are at it, lift up a prayer for her dad! :)

Hey Kristen, at least you don’t need to wear a helmet like you had to while riding your bike and the seat belt won’t mess up your stylin’ hair!  ;)

As I was teaching her some driving tips, I was reminded of the basics of life that I’d like to share with all of you:  Remember to check your mirrors and don’t forget to look over the shoulder…because the person passing by in the left lane might be my precious daughter!

    isn’t that a van pastor Jonathan? Cars these days have so many features, you really don’t NEED to drive.

    Thanks for the blog, your stories always make my day.

    Wow, Kristen is starting to drive now! Time sure has passed.

    But remember, to be safe – just don’t text or make calls while driving.
