rites of passage-Josiah is driving!

Ok-just the lawn tractor, on 2 or 3 passes around the pasture, but it’s a start he is very excited about! This was our conversation afterwards:

“Mom, you made driving look so easy…when I watch you drive you are drinking coffee and singing. But it’s harder than I thought! Especially that turning…no wonder you got in so many car accidents…!”
“Umm, son, for the record…5 car accidents in 20 years isn’t THAT bad…”
“But how many has DAD had?”
(silence)
“hmmm. Maybe it’s just girl-drivers”

Sorry fellow women-all that hard work by feminist leaders, undone by my bad example…
