That's right, Lizzie is now a full on card carrying member of the driving society. Well, when I say card carrying, I mean that after standing in about 500 lines at the DMV, they gave her a slip of paper and told her that she would receive her driver's permit in the mail in 2-3 weeks.
But she does have legal permission to drive. Only with me. Apparently Colorado law has changed even more since Puff got her license. Now, if you are under the age of 16, you can only drive with the person who actually signed your paper. In front of witnesses.
And they don't tell you where you can get a mini-van fitted with one of those extra brake pedals.
We've been driving a couple of times in parking lots. As soon as I'm convinced she's got the difference between the brake and the gas fixed solidly in her brain, we'll graduate to neighborhood streets, then feeder roads, and finally highway driving.
She's SO wishing she'd waited for her dad to take her down to that DMV.
