I just took my older daughter out to learn. I picked a deserted parking lot (it's Saturday) thinking it would be a safe place. And then I saw it...the canal just a few feet away. Visions of submerging into that canal in our van overwhelmed me.
Obviously, I'm here, so we didn't take a dip.
Instead, my daughter drove around in one little circle - over and over and over and over and over....... She reminded me of our cat who's afraid to come out of my daughter's room. I almost fell asleep, which also means she didn't scare me too badly.
After almost an hour, she'd had enough and called it a day. Tomorrow is another day, however. We plan to go back so she can practice right turns and maybe how to back up.
Fun fun fun!
I discovered I'm a much better teacher than my dad. I'm amazed my feet recovered after all the times he stomped on them because he thought I was going too slow and was going to get creamed, or when he thought I was going too fast and he slammed on the brakes.
Oh, the joys of new drivers.
