Well, it's finally happened. My boy is driving me around! I must admit that Sean has been a whole lot more comfortable being chauffered by Zack than I was. I tended to see all the "potential" dangers and have had to bite my tongue...HARD to keep from speaking my thoughts. Zack has been driving for several months now and he does really great, after all, he's had a good teacher, Sean! (Just a little side note here, Sean taught me to drive too! Brave man he is.) It's just that weird feeling of looking over and seeing your boy behind the wheel of machine with lots of power. Scary!
You know, I just blinked and now this 9 lb. 5 oz. baby boy is driving! It won't be but another blink and he will be grown and on his own. This is a gut wrenching thought for me. I can't imagine not having him here to talk to, laugh with, yell at. LOL! I am so very thankful we have homeschooled. It has forged some very tight bonds between all of us and brought sweet friendships with one another.
As Zack drove his brother and I one day, a million of these thoughts were racing thru my mind. He asked me what I was thinking and I just got all teary-eyed. He wouldn't understand...at least not yet...not until he is chauffered by his own child and thinking how fast childhood really goes will it make sense.
