took my car yesterday, and drove himself across the ferry, through Seattle, across a floating bridge and to my sister's house. They spent a good day shopping together, and had dinner with my brother-in-law, brother and sister-in-law. Then he drove himself to my brother & sister-in-law's house, spent the night with them, and went skiing with them all day today. This was his first time using his new skis, boots & poles (birthday and Christmas gifts).
He then drove himself back over the bridge, through Seattle, across the ferry and safely home; praise God!
I'm not sure for whom it was a rite of passage -- him, or me -- but I'm very relieved!
Congratulations on getting your driver's license, David.
