As a Mom of a 15 year old the milestones are coming fast and furious. Last week Bryan got his driving permit, I am happy for him and terrified at the same time. It is a huge step toward independence, not to mention higher monthly bills! He has done well with driving around town but it is truly the most stressful experience I have ever had. I have to stay calm so I don't alarm him and cause him to flip our SUV. But he needs constant advice mainly SLOW DOWN! Everytime we get out of the car I feel like I have run a marathon.
Another milestone he reached this week was his confirmation, 10 years of religious education and community service, with me behind him with two hands pushing the whole time. It was a very beautiful ceremony. Jim and I were very proud of this accomplishment!
