Driving HOME.

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

Last night our whole family along with John and Carol went to a local church to serve homeless men through a program called HOME that our church is sponsoring this month. We were there for an hour, packed lunches and served dinner for close to 30 men. We got a ton done in just an hour! This is the second year we have done this and are glad to be able to serve. The team leaders did take a picture of us, but I didn't get any pics with my camera.

Yesterday was also Preston's first day of driver's education! Preston found driver's ed to be a huge waste of two hours. Well, two hours three days a week for a month...just the price you pay to be able to drive, so not really a waste.

The place Preston will learn how to drive...hope they teach him well!

See you tomorrow.

Driver's Ed is not part of high school like when I was a teenager? (yeah, I know, the dark ages with horse and buggy....). We had a Driver's Ed class for about 6 weeks that was part of PE. They had cars for us to use, both standard and automatic transmissions.

What is the driving age in WA and are there restricted licenses (for younger teens requiring parents in front seat, etc)?

Yes, my driver's ed was through school too. These days it is all private and expensive (~$500.00). He can get his license at age 16, but there are some restrictions for the first 6 months or something like that. I am sure we will find all that out in the coming weeks. The car he will learn on at school is a hybrid Honda Civic. The car he will drive at home is not nearly as nice:)
